Yes, I know Swissies weren't bred for water rescue.  But since Dick was teaching it, we decided that it was worth a 2 hour drive each way.  Mouse has really surprised me.  He's taken to the water like a natural and extreme enthusiastic about saving people.  Twice in one training session he's ripped through his soft crate to do a rescue.  So much for the crate, at least he's got great instincts.  

Recommended books: Water Work, Water Play by Judi Adler   This book has a REALLY great section on control and suggestions for problems in training.  That section is a MUST for 99.9% of all dog owners out there.   Dog Works and the Newf National Club should have it.  Email me if you cannot find the book.

Who did the 7 ft tall park ranger find?   I think its a little Mouse!  Mouse just earned his SWET!

Not only did Mouse get his life jacket, he also towed in a "victim."  Mouse says, "Kill two birds with one stone."
