Tasha was the best first partner a handler could have. She was focused on trailing, but enjoyed the search game that she did very well with cadaver, avalanche, disaster and water search trainings. She was a true solid partner that told me what to do more than I told her; as it was her nose and not mine working the job. Tasha let nothing deter her from her search work and was willing to do anything I required of her. Tasha taught me that one of the key points in a team is trust between both handler and canine. Her determination and confidence resulted in two finds: first was a life-saving event for an 80 year old woman missing for over 3.5 days; second was a diabetic woman missing for over 18 hours. She enjoyed the search game beyond her 13 years just for the mental challenge. Tasha taught me how stamina, strength and determination will get one to the final result – and then it was time for the Frisbee.
