CONGRATULATIONS K9 LUKE ON RE-CERTIFICATION

Track was approximately 1.6 km long and aged 45 minutes. Track test was conducted at an industrial site / Brandon Airport. Industrial tracks are regarded as harder for dog to do than rural tracks.
Person Search took place in a heavy bush. Luke was required to locate a complete stranger and indicate person by barking. Luke worked bush well, did a good pattern. Located person and stayed with person barking for several minutes as required.
Obedience and obstacle testing was done on 17 May 2023. Luke did well in both.
