Janz Haus German Shepherds will be hosting a Search & Rescue Workshop on Sept. 23, 2018 with special guest Mark Hall.
Mark is a K9 Handler with Canada Task Force 2 (CTF2) and works with our outstanding Janz Haus boy, Axel von Janzhaus. CTF2 is based in Calgary, Ab and is an "all hazards" Disaster Team with diverse capacity to respond to a variety of man-made or natural disasters. The team is composed of over 150 Rescue Specialists, Doctors, Paramedics, Structual Engineers, Communication Specialists, Canine & Technical Searchers, Logistics Specialists and Command Staff, who volunteer their time to train and prepare so that they may respond as a highly specialized team, capable of handling a wide variety of demanding disaster and rescue situations. This team is funded by both the Provincial & Federal governments.
Mark has been working with dogs for the past 30 years. He was a Police Officer for 20 years in the United Kingdom where he was a K9 Handler working with both German Shepherds and Labradors. Both breeds were used in tracking, searching, criminal apprehension, and explosive detection. Mark immigrated to Canada in 2008 where he has continued his career and is now a Police Officer with the Calgary Police Service. Mark is now also the Team Leader for the K9 Section of CTF2.
Mark's expertise includes identifying and selecting a dog for the purpose of Search & Rescue such as my Axel von Janzhaus. I am proud to say Axel is a purebred GS from Janz Haus and is now a fully certified Heavy Urban Search & Rescue K9 to a level 1 & 2 in a disaster profile. Axel is one of only 17 Level 2 Rescue Dogs in Canada.
Our Workshop is open to dog owners who with their dogs would like to become involved as search and rescue volunteers and give back to their communities while helping to save lives. Mark will be demonstrating s & r training techniques and identifying dogs with s & r potential.
Our Workshop is being offered as a Community Service to dog owners wishing to become involved in search and rescue. There is no charge for the workshop but attendance is limited to the first 6 dog/dog owners who register. The Workshop will go from 10 - 2 on September 23, 2018 at Janz Haus Kennels, Sylvan Lake, Ab.
