P.E.I. loves Mike Chapman!!
Recently, we reached out to Mike Chapman for his expertise in helping to find a very shy dog on the run. In my 40 years of owning dogs, this is the first time I’ve ever had to deal with something like this. Mike accepted our case, and led the way with knowledge, compassion, optimism, and the drive to get the job done.
Our time with Mike was never wasted. We were learning the whole time. The impact he made on our volunteers was profound. His vision of dog/animal rescue goes far beyond the scope of what we’re used to in our geographical area. Mike has a gift, and it is my sincere hope that he never stops sharing it.
I wanted to reach out to your organization since this is where Mike received his credentials. Hats off to a superb training program!! When you pair that with the dedication that Mike generously shares, it is the perfect combination!
Going forward, I hope that Mike continues the great work that he is doing. I’m not sure if Sailor ( the shy dog) would be with us today if it weren’t for Mike!
The reality is……there will always be lost and missing pets. It will be exciting to follow his cases, and watch his success as he continues to reunite pets with their people.
If you are on Facebook, we have a group page that we started when Sailor went missing. If you ask to join, you will see first hand exactly what I am talking about. SEARCHING for SAILOR!!
Every Shelter or Animal Rescue Group Should Take This Training Course
I had already been helping my wife Tracey with MAR work and she had won the MAR course during one of Kat’s training seminars. So I decided to take the course and fill in the gaps of what I had already learned and what I was missing. To my surprise I had opened a door to a new understand
Changed My Life – Traci M Durango
I took Kat’s on line course and it changed my life. Even if you choose to not have a search dog you will learn the science behind how, where and why animals go missing and what you can do to help
I Couldn’t Wait Until the Next Week’s Lesson Arrived – Susan L.
I took the class expecting it to be superficial information that I already knew. I couldn’t have been more wrong! This class is in depth, research based, and very professional. I couldn’t wait until the next week’s lesson arrived. I highly recommend it for anyone that is helping to recover lost pets.
An Incredibly In-Depth and Informative Course – Sharon M
I had the opportunity to take the MAR 10 week course with Kat Albrecht over the winter. I found it to be an incredibly in-depth and informative course. Not only in the volumes of well thought out but professionally presented information she presented but also in the weekly telephone support she provided. Kat is truly one of those wonderful people you only get to meet a few times in your life.
Kat is a Gem as A Teacher, You Will Be Learning From the Best! – Karin N.
I had bought Kat Albrecht’s books wanting to have more information in “Search and Rescue” comparing it with “Map Dowsing” the way I search for missing animals. I was happy when I found out about the Mar 10 week certified course “Kat Albrecht” was teaching. I sure was looking forward to my first class and was not disappointed of having taken this step! Kat is a gem as a teacher, the material, skill, knowledge and sense of humor, made the time fly. Question we could ask regarding homework would be answered in a timely fashion I have never experienced in any other course! I certainly can recommend “Kat Albrecht’s – Mar Course” to anyone who is interested in “Search and Rescue”. You will be learning from the best!
One of the Best Courses I Have Ever Taken – Judene D.
After many years in lost pet recovery, I found this course still taught me a great deal. It was one of the best courses I have ever taken. Kat’s knowledge, skill, experience, humor, compassion, and dedication make this a wonderful learning opportunity. I also find the ways Kat provides for MAR graduates to communicate with each other allowing sharing of information and support to be invaluable.
Loved the MAR Training – Jim B. Cincinnati, Ohio
Loved the MAR training and the insights from my MARs classmates. Very beneficial information in how to up my skills in searches for lost pets!
Definitely so worth it! – Jennifer H. Comer
The knowledge I gained and continue to learn from the MAR training is amazing, I have always tried to find pets. Now I believe I am acquiring proper, proven,skills to reunite more families. The connections made, because of the MAR class, with other like-minded people, to share experiences and advice is irreplaceable. Definitely so worth it!
The Classes Were Convenient and Informative – Crystal C.
I was delighted to take a MAR training course from Kat. I was impressed with the details, depth, and the variety of materials shared with us during our course. The classes were convenient, informative and delivered with skill and an obvious passion for passing on her experience and knowledge to others so that more people and animals can be helped. Highly recommend!
Techniques learned through this course are credited for saving many lives and reuniting families
The MAR course helped me understand the behavior of a lost pet and the science of a search. The techniques learned through this course are credited for saving many lives and reuniting families.
