As an Assistant Instructor I am
instructing dispatch centers, police, hospitals and different SAR-teams with
air scent dogs with my wife Gundula and doing mantrailing workshops for rescue
and police dogs. It was a great experience for me learning such a lot about
mantrailing from Kevin when he was in Austria!
I have contributed to several
successful searches to include:
Until now I have had about 100 real cases supporting my wife in a
team and of course a lot of "collecting information for the operations management".
Two times we could really save lifes
with our dog Arthus!
One time our dog found a handicaped
eight years old boy, disappeared for three hours. Really so great to find a
child and giving back to his mother- uninsured!
Second time "Arthus" was running a
trail about 4 kilometers starting at home through meadows, woods, streets, when
the man was missed from noon the day before. The mantrailer showed the missing
old man lying ten meters above in the thicket- very cold and weak but
And of course we had a lot of
missing young and old persons going into the water, committing suicide, having accidents...
God bless their souls! It´s so tragic for the families, but everybody wants to
know the truth.
Mantrailing TKM is a very happy part
of our "normal" family life.
Thank you so much for teaching us,
