Meet Jake: in training to be the next Vail Patrol Dog
Apr. 9, 2015
Vail Ski Patrol’s latest recruit: 10-week-old Jake.
Jake, a yellow lab, got his first taste of snow at the top of Vail this morning. He’ll be working with trainer and Vail Patroller, Matt Whalen, to master obedience skills, get used to riding chairlifts and train in avalanche rescue.
We’ll have updates about Jake’s progress throughout the summer right here on the blog! Got questions about the process? Be sure to ask them in the comment section below.
