Canine Section Winter Training Camp 2015

What a busy but fun filled winter camp in Karrakup for the SES Canine Section. Among the weekend's exercises included night searches, first aider/responder (when locating a casualty on a search), map and navigation work, radio communications as well as games and bonding with fellow team members, both human and canine alike. The dogs loved searching through the bushland through wet conditions and even located a couple of local scout groups!
All in all a fantastic weekend. It was great for teams to consolidate learnt skills and techniques and also to engage in some social time.
Special thanks to Rosie & Cathryn for organising the venue, to Leonie for coordinating, to Stephanie for organising social games, to all 'bodies' for hiding, Matt for keeping us well fed and to all members who pitched in.
