We have a very young, but talented Avalanche Dog Team this season. Rio, a popular crowd favorite and a golden retriever, is a four year old certified avalanche rescue dog. She makes all the drills look easy. Max is a one year old black lab that has picked up search skills quickly. He hopes to pass his certification test by spring. Our newest dog, Sasha, joined us a few weeks ago. She is a little German Shepard fur ball learning her way around Patrol Headquarters.
