Renee Sigman of Yesterday Acres bred a pup being trained for Search & Rescue Kate is Bender's trainer and his training can be followed  on this blogsite  - www.zachandbender.blogspot.com/ Yesterday was Bender's first time officially attending search dog training and he did very Bender has been doing very well with his search training. He is turning into a very handsome young man. I know I have been reporting for some time that Bender rings the bell on the back door to let me know that Zach wants to come inside, but now I have the proof. Bender and I were inside and I heard Zach bark at the door. Bender took off like a rocket and I grabbed the camera and followed him. I was able to catch this shot to finally prove that he does this. Be sure to follow Bender's training on his blogsite  -  www.zachandbender.blogspot.com/ UPDATE October 2006 (from his trainer) He is doing very well with his search training. He will reliably find the victim in any terrain and really keeps working, progressing across the sector in big sweeping circles—it is obvious that he knows what he is doing. He is now working on solidifying his indication and refind. He needs to come back to me and sit (I am accepting very wiggly sits as he gets soooo excited). When I say, “Show me!” He takes me right back into the victim, so those are the major components. Once the indication (sit) is reliable in all circumstances, the size of the sector gets bigger (he ranges very far away from me, so the indication is imperative). Then he will be ready for his evaluation on daytime air-scenting (he should be certified by the end of 2006) then I will get him certified for night work and we will start on human remains detection (we may actually start that a little sooner).
