HRD Seminar

Cadaver Dog Seminar

Last weekend Mana and I travelled to Yamanashi prefecture at the base of Mt. Fuji to take part in a Human Remains Detection or HRD Seminar where Mana could learn to identify and alert to the scent of people who have died.

The seminar took place at an absolutely amazing facility, with both indoor and outdoor dog runs, and even a swimming pool, the Woof Dog Resort and great place for those who like to travel with their dogs check out their hompage for more info.

The instructors are legends in the SARDOG community and actually did write the book on Cadaver search. Andy Rebmann and Marcia Koenig from K-9 Specialty Search Associates have been involved with search dogs for over 40 years and have been to Japan to teach a few times over the years to share their wealth of knowledge.

I want to thank Emi Masuda for all the hard work involved in arranging the seminar as well as the translation, it was wonderful to finally meet you and you did a great job!

A total of 30 people came from all over the country, representing about 11 rescue dog associations and it was really fun to make new friends and to meet with old ones and get caught up.

The seminar was conducted over 3 days and involved both lectures as well as hands on practice, as per the norm Mana was full of beans and rearing to go and she did really well throughout the whole course, she’s definitely built for this!

We used Pseudo Scent 1 and 2 and a variety of other training aids to familiarize the dogs with the scent of human remains of various stages of decomposition.

We first worked indoors on simple problems to imprint the scent so the dogs would know what to alert on and as they got the swing of it we gradually made the searches more and more difficult until we were outside running searches.

It was a really fun seminar and we learned a lot! Marcia, Andy , and Emi were just great and I’m really looking forward to the next seminar. A fantastic experience!
