Waiting in the Wings

Here we introduce our Pre-Stage 1 Puppies.

Our Pre-Stage 1 Group has been designed to help aspiring Dog Teams to train towards the Introductory Assessment, the entry criteria to joining the Association. Once these puppy teams pass the Introductory Assessment they are then classed as Trainee Search Dog Teams and will start on the Stages that will lead (hopefully) to become one of our Graded Search Dog Teams. The puppies are supported and guided by the watchful eye and helpful advice of Jen Cartmel (https://www.clever-dogs.co.uk/), who offers up the latest in dog training methods. Jen comments, ‘I love the way that dog training is still evolving. The positive methods being used and encouraged in today’s training environments are producing lovely, happy, balanced dogs’,


Handler Matt with his new puppy Mist are our only Pre-Stage 1 Teams.
