K9 Slim Scent Specific 

Trailing

Scholarship

 

 

K9 Slim was a dual-purpose patrol dog handled by City of Madison Police Officer Carren Corcoran Gummin from 2010-2020. K9 Slim excelled at scent specific trailing in large part due to his initial training in the Kocher Method and Carren even attempting “the difficult tracks” asked of them. K9 Slim passed away on December 27, 2022 at 14 years of age. He had a profound effect on all that worked with him. K9 Slim opened minds and demonstrated the limitlessness of a well-trained dog and a handler who would work outside the box when needed.

 

This scholarship will provide a Dual Purpose Patrol Dog Team free attendance (valued at $450) at a Basic Scent Specific Tracking Class instructed by Canine Search Solutions in the year 2024.
