Update on Harley & Flo

Saturday 22nd April 2023

Written by Rachael Flavell Owner of Paws for Conservation ⭐ Great Crested Newt assessment results ⭐ We've completed two days of GCN testing with three of our dogs, Harley, Flo and Stig.

The dogs were exposed to 19 wild GCN that they have not been previously trained on. They also worked blank areas and blank runs with no false indications. We're delighted to announce that the three dogs scored 100% on all the tests. These trials were not easy, and some of the dogs encountered a few obstacles, which is to be expected. However, we know our dogs and we're able to identify problems,…
