Assistant Instructor INBTI
Rescue dog squadron Samariterbund Tirol, especially mantrailing
SAR Team Austria
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!
A lot of real cases running successful trails with our rescue Mantrailing dogs Arthus and now Amor about more than ten years for the operations manager in missing person searches.__Two times we could really saved lifes. First time my_dog found a handicaped eight years old boy, disappeared for three hours. Really so great giving the child back to his mother- uninsured. Seconed time we were running a trail about 4 kilometers, the man was missed from noon the day before. The mantraildog showed the missing old man lying ten meters above in the thicket- very cold and wek but uninsured. We also were running trails to the railway station and showed a perfect pick up by train. We were running trails about 8 kilometers ending in a river the person was lying. We were trailing after 5 days from a bus station in the valley high above the mountain 1770 meters. And of course we had a lot of missing persons goining into the water, committing suicide, having accidents. God bless their souls.
Mantrailing TKM is a very happy part of our “normal” family life.
Thank you so much for teaching us, Kevin!
