We are adding K9 units to our post construction survey teams. K9 units have been shown to have higher recovery rates and are much more efficient (Arnett 2006), resulting in better quality data for less time and money.
Our dogs are specially bred for nose work. And, while we were not surprised to have them point birds at an early age, we were surprised to find them naturally pointing bats!
Freckles, photo on right, is one of our up-and-coming pups. She is in training using K9 search and rescue techniques, shown to be effective for human rescue, crime scene (cadaver), and police K9 work. We are looking forward to getting Freckles out on site. She is exceptionally high energy and LOVES to work.
