Area Search teams activated on Sunday

Three Area Search teams from the Canine Section were called to a search on Sunday afternoon for an elderly lady who went missing at midday. Leonie and Jemma, Chris and Piper and Steph and Karma assisted with clearing areas of park and bushland in Perth's northern suburbs. Among those searching were foot  and cycle teams, SES volunteers from Wanneroo/Joondalup. At 7pm the missing person was found well and safe- a great outcome for all involved.

2013 RSPCA Million Paws Walk

What a fantastic day the K9 Section had on the South Perth Foreshore today for the RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2013. The weather was ideal for the 5km walk along Sir James Mitchell Park where hundreds of dogs joined together to support the great work of the RSPCA. The dogs were so excited to make so many new friends! Our Training Manager, Leonie even got an interview with Michael Schultz from Channel 10 News. Looking forward to seeing you and your pooches there next year!

Requesting new training areas

The SES Canine Section is currently seeking more areas to train in.  It is important for the dogs and handlers to train on a variety of different terrains and locations. We are looking for large open bushland areas and large paddocks or grassy areas, both flat and hilly preferably over 1km2.

 If you have access to training areas that you think may be suitable or if you would like more information on the Canine Section please contact us using the 'Contact Us' link (LHS of the page)
or email:  sesdogswa@gmail.com  
or through our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SESDogsWA
As with all SES members we are covered by insurance, our dogs are under control at all times, safe with wild life and all faeces are removed from the area.
