On Sunday, several of the GSROC dogs were selected to participate in an evaluation for possible work in bomb detection or narcotics work. The agency that was seeking good candidates places dogs with various service agencies throughout the country. We selected two of our dogs that have shown especally high drive and a need to have a working situation. Master Trainer Ron Gaunt of www.travelnmandogs.com put Billy and Rocky through various paces and let the dogs show off what they could do. He was very impressed by how alert and responsive both of our big fellas were, but unfortunately, neither was selected for the program. We know that the dogs truly enjoyed having the opportunity to be out and active, and we look forward to having more dogs evaluated in the near future.
