I have a 3 year old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. As Team Skye we are certified Live find 40 acres by the Rhode Island State police Team Skye is also certified human remains detection, water cadaver and Crime Scene by International Police Working Dog Assocation IPWDA. Team Skye is a member of the Rhode Island Canine Search and Rescue (RICSAR) team and we train most every Sunday. We stand ready to deploy for a missing child, hiker, or older person search
Why do you do it?
After I retired from the Rhode Island Army National Guard I was missing serving the community. RICSAR gives me that opportunity and requires I stay fit and also give me the camaraderie of working with a professional group of mission orientated people.
