Martha’s first dog specialized in Air Scenting or Live Find. Dieter, her 4 year old German Shepherd Dog, earned his first Tracking title with IPWDA (International Police Working Dog Association) before the age of 2 and continued on to get his Trialing IPWDA Title less than a year later. He is currently working on his AKC VST title.Martha has worked for 5 yrs with various individuals in the SAR field as well as Law Enforcement.
