Abstract

Robin Habeger, development officer with the ISU Foundation, moonlights as a search and rescue dog trainer. She often visits animal science undergraduate courses to demonstrate training methods. During the demonstration she emphasizes the importance of body language, timing and play as a reward for working dogs. The students picture are in Anna Johnson's domestic animal behavior and well-being class (see story on Johnson on page 18). Moses, a yellow labrador-golden retriever mix, is one of two search and rescue dogs owned by Habeger. He is a FEMA disaster dog in training.
