On August 30, 2017, three Oriole members attended a meeting of Scout troop #615 located at the Church of the Resurrection/ Saint Paul’s School in Ellicott City, Maryland. The topic was nose work and training of nose work search dogs. Linda Grskovich gave a brief talk about training and the sport; she then demonstrated how a dog starts training with Laska, her 8 month old Doberman Pinscher.
Member Helena Dahlen demonstrated a dog working scent with her Flat Coated retriever, Porter. Porter did 3 complex searches for the group. Donald Grskovich then did a demonstration with his Doberman, Broker. Broker did a complex search of 6 hides and searched the entire school cafeteria. The boy scouts had lots of good questions and enjoyed the visits from the three dogs.
