He won in Slovenian team in Romania, where the international chapionship for rescue dogs took place.
Congrats Griff in Staša.
As last years 2014, this year also, Griff was very successful. First, he passed two exams, one was from missing persons in nature level/class B, second in rescuing people buried in ruins level/class B. With these exams he fulfilled the condition to enroll in world champhionship for rescue dogs.
In may, he participated in MOL exercises, where the team was made out of three leaders and their dogs. As leaders as their dogs had to do their best at walking, rope techniques, first aid for casualty, orientation and three rescuings of missing person in nature and four rescuings persons buried in the ruins. The team, of course was very successful because Griff was part of it.
In September, Staša and Griff participated in world championship of dogs rescuers in Nova Gorica. Because of the mistake Staša made, they were not successful, although they improved obediance really well and found everyone trapped in ruins.
In October they participated in three competitions. In the beginning of October there was a team competition, where again single team had three leaders and their dogs. The team, once again was very successful! Congratulations Griff!!!
In the middle of October there was a selection for MOL unit, where Staša and Griff once again showed what they are capable of, and were successful once again!
At the end of the October they renewed their license for international unit!
