Steve Austin Trains CCF’s Scat Dogs

Dog trainer Steve Austin is here from Australia, and we took the dogs over to the cheetah release pens to look for scat. Steve has spent over 20 years training detection dogs throughout the world – dogs trained for drugs, plants and fruit at the airports, as well as conservation detection dogs. Steve is training Carolyn who has been working with the dogs for several months, as well as training the dogs, Isha and Finn. I am watching everything I can, and am filming the training process. I went out today with them into the Big Field. Isha is amazing – she was focused and sat like a star. Finn is not as structured – but he works the area better and finds what he is looking for – they are great and Steve Austin is amazing.
