On a personal side

Monique spends her free time with her family, training her dogs & searching with her K9 Search and Recovery teams! 

(Roots K9 & SRDK9s)

Monique has 3 dogs that she is continually training with:



Her oldest German Shepherd is trained in 'Live Find' & HRD (Human Remains Detection). Sadly we had to pull her as a working dog due to her heart condition. 


Is her younger shepherd and is certified HRD (Human Remains Detection) K9 & is actively in K9 Search and Recovery. She is also working towards her tracking certification.  

In 2023, Monique and her dog Rogue acquired their Land HRD Certification and Recertified with their Wilderness HRD Certification. 



Is a Border Collie and the newest addition to the family at just a year old! He is currently working towards his HRD certifications, and tracking certifications. 


In 2024 her goals are to acquire a couple of other certifications with her K9 partner Rogue in Water HRD and tracking. With Asher, her goals are to acquire an HRD and tracking certification.
