In Training for Air Scent
BlackJack is a 2.5 year old Lab/Australian Shepherd mix. He has been in training for Search and Rescue for over a year and is currently training to be a certified airscent dog. BlackJack’s strong drive and willing-to-please nature has been key in his training progression and will make him an excellent search dog. His keen intellect allowed him to be the youngest dog to pass a CGC test at just 2 months old, while his overbounding energy and endurance allows him to work without rest for hours on a problem until the subject is found. He was rescued from the back of a pickup truck in Yoder, Colorado when he was just 6 weeks old. BlackJack’s favorite activity outside of Search and Rescue is herding barn cats, horses, and chickens.
