Search And Rescue

Recommended Posts

Yeah neither of mine will sit and stay unless there's a treat involved and as for not running off..... Snowy only has to see a leaf blowing in the wind and he's like some kind of fixated stalker :)

i got an HD camera, so i was planning to make clips of his training and later when we make a lot of different clips merge them into one clip showing Siberian husky doing SAR training..

 

any help would be helpful, from which program to use to edit videos, tips on which way to shoot scenes and any suggestions  :)

I do know of at least one successful SAR Siberian (now deceased) in the USA:

 

Shadow was a canine member of the MARK-9 team based in Texas.  She was featured in the Siberian husky episode of the Animal Planet show "Breed All About It" - you might be able to find the clip on youtube, though I don't think any of the episodes are available anymore in their entirety.  You might also want to check out the book "Scent of the Missing" by Susannah Charleson - the author is a teammate of Shadow's former handler, and Shadow gets a good amount of page time.

 

So...as far as I know there aren't many huskies being trained for SAR work, but it's certainly possible.  Good luck with your beautiful dog! :)

Yeh, I think the definiton of Husky Search and Rescue is every owner and all the neighbors!  :doglaugh:

Yes, I think too that it's usually people searching for Huskies and not the other way around :rofl:

But it's a nice thing to teach her, good luck!

thanks jennarose..

 

few days ago we participated on a training with Club for training service and sporting dogs from Zagreb, with their Rescue team.. the leader of the group has a SAR Siberian husky 4 year old girl named Rea and he is also learning his new siberian 5 months old, and she is doing great too.. at their club there is also one Alaskan malamute SAR dog named Astra..

tomorrow we are going on a training with them again, so i hope to make some videos :)

Wow I'm still amazed that Balto does this!! It's great to see them doing this and loving it!

Keep up the great work! Xx

I think also given the terrain with Balto and not really a lot of distractions re cattle, livestock or other people or their dogs he's learnt to focus on the job in hand and...recall has become automatic given the apparent rough/wild terrain.

I can make Chester 'sit & down stay' with just another dog but more around?...I'd need a long rein attached but loose on ground - just in case! Lol

he can work also with people around and other dogs around, we did few times near livestock too, but sending the dog in oposite direction

 

his recall is also great regardless of our position, alone in the woods or with lot of other dogs at park

I've just now stumbled upon this topic, and all I can say is WOW. You're doing an amazing job with Balto.

It's a fact that huskies are great at search, it's the rescue that can be the problem, but when you figure out that part, which you obviously have, then they can be the perfect SnR dogs.

 

There's a dog school in Zagreb that does nosework with dogs, you've probably heard of it, it's called KA-DOG. Anyway here's the link if you haven't, I'm sure Balto would be great at it too. http://www.njuskarenje.com/

It is a fortunate thing. How soon did you start him S&R ? As a very young pup?

And was he with (watching) another already more experienced dog?

They do learn by example and quite possibly my 'home-dog' Westies were that (focuses on what was outdide the fence at the back..which is the road into our local church); as I did not go out 'socialising' (like I do wirh him) especially, but they did lots of long country walks.

My old boy and girl were very good on recall and I do think Chester got something from this except he relapses into complete deafness when focused on something else. If I disappear...(hiding), THEN he shows serious SA and heads for home...not so good if we are on the other side of a busy main B road

..so I have to stand and blow the whistle fast!

thanks Damir, yea i know for Ka-dog, but i think they are charging those trainings quite expensive.. we are training only with volunteers, KOSSP and HGSS and they have professionals that love to work with dogs and to share their knowledge

 

Maz51, we started at very young age, sar trainings at about 7-8 months old, and he was learning side by side with his best friend German sheperd who was already trained sar dog

That makes complete sense!

I know that spraying garlic on say, car keys and hiding them is one way to start 'find & retrieve' - I reckon I'll try this with mine..

He does 'look' now when I chuck his toys around into corners or behind a chair and retrieves back to me and place into a bowl!

Can also pick up his 'comfort' blanket from garden and 'fetch to bed'.

Should've called him Snoopy'! Lol

Noah can fetch and retrieve his favorite toy, a chicken leg and he sits automatically at the side of the road when crossing.  And that my friends is the only thing he can be relied on to do.   So I think this is amazing what you are doing.  Love to hear more on his training as he progresses.

Check out www.success dogs.com.

A lot of free tips on there starting with basic 'watch me' techniques to get yourvpet focussed on YOU and you... also learning to read your pet's body language - because they read yours!

I've learnt more in the last 15 mths than a lifetime from Jean Cote (so far) on dog training/encouragement AND horses:- "Equus"- by Monty Roberts; both compliment each other and reading just what theit ears tell you (whether listening or 'speaking' to say I need your attention..."

Fascinating - like an animal whisperer.

'A Dog's Purpose' by Bruce Cameron has more than just softie stories about how your dog (& their previous lives) 'reads' you!

Try communication without speaking but in sign & body language to them...now that's a challenge!
