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:


EMBER-  Her oldest German Shepherd who is trained in 'Live Find'. Sadly we had to pull her as a working dog due to her heart condition. 

ROGUE- Is a certified HRD Dog and is actively in K9 Search and Recovery, training in tracking and doing IGP (formally known as Schutzhund).  

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


ASHER- Is just a puppy, but we are training in Mantrailing, Urban Tracking and Narcotics Detection. 


In 2023 her goals are to acquire another certification with her K9 partner Rogue in Search & Rescue + Human Remains Detection, and to work towards her IGP1. With Asher her goals are to acquire a tracking + trailing title & to certify for narcotics detection.
