April 2023

April was a busy month for Specialist Search Dogs with travel across the UK and Ireland. For 2 weeks SSD were involved in a search focused on Ennerdale Water in the Lake District. The second search of the month was another water search on the River Clyde in Glasgow.

This was followed by a trip to the Republic of Ireland as part of a large-scale training event with other search teams (MRIAM 23). SSD sent search dog Shadow to demonstrate cadaver search techniques to mountain tescue teams.

There was further success in the month as Jackson received his first mantrailing qualification through GAK9.
