Three Dogs Qualify in KentNSARDA Kent Qualifies 3 Dogs at Lowland ‘Initial’ Grade

Dave, secretary of NSARDA, journeyed down to a scout camp site just south west of Royal Tunbridge Wells, where he was joined by the NSARDA Chairman, Harold Burrows and the search dog training officer for Wales, Roly Leyland, to spend a long weekend down in Kent as external assessors for NSARDA Kent who were conducting an assessment weekend.

Over the course of the weekend all three handlers and dogs successfully achieved their grading.

Congratulations to all of you and a hige thanks to the external assessors, all the bodies and the whole team who made it all possible.

As a pleasant footnote one handler, Mick, had saved his dog, Red, from a rescue centre where the dog had been in kennels for twelve months due to no one wanting the poor unfortunate animal. Mick aquired him and has now turned him into a delightful search dog. Well done that man.
