The Kicking Horse Rescue Dog Association (KHRDA) is excited to announce that two members of the association have recently achieved validated status with the Canadian Avalanche Rescue Dog Association (CARDA).  Ron Smeele and his dog Paco and Adam Sherriff and his dog Brooke both recently validated after participating in the annual winter training course.  Validation with CARDA comes after a minimum of two years of hard work, constant training and practice.  Brooke and Paco (Paco is pictured in photo above right) are now in great company with Wiser and Lava the two existing validated dogs in Golden.  The four dog team are all now fully validated Avalanche Rescue Dog Teams and provide seven day a week coverage to the Columbia valley and beyond in the event of an avalanche accident.  The KHRDA would like to thank Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Petcurean Pet Nutrition, Golden and District Search and Rescue, and the Columbia Basin Trust for all the support.
