John Koerner has titled many dogs to schutzhund titles and
has been involved in search and rescue for over 20 years. He is President of
Peninsula Canine Corps, one of USCA's oldest schutzhund clubs. John and Sampson are with
the County Search and Rescue team as well as California Rescue Dog Association.
Sampson, from a young age, was a natural for search and rescue
work. Like his mother, V - Nicole vom Haus Ledda, SchH 3, FH2, CDX, TD, Sampson
is totally self confident in his temperament, totally stable nerves, excellent
offactory senses......and LOVES to work. BEFORE being certified for cadaver
work and during training when Sampson was approximately one year old, he
found a body. He was first certified for cadaver work many years ago, and was
just recently recertified. Recertification is done yearly for each search and
rescue category. Below are photos of John and Sampson......and more concerning
their work in search and rescue.
