OSRT K-9 Baloo Upgrades Qualifications
Ohio Special Response Team K-9, Baloo, continues to build professional level search qualifications by adding the International Police Work Dog Association's (IPWDA) Land HRD and Water HRD skill set. These are in addition to Baloo's USPCA HRD qualifications. Jennifer Stokes, Baloo's handler-best-friend, also enhanced her SAR skills by completing her National Association for Search and Rescue “Search and Rescue Technician II" (SARTech II) credential.
Jennifer and Baloo join the select few Ohio Search Teams to couple advanced human SAR qualifications with advanced K-9 qualifications.
