Notes: "Yankee was purchased in upper state New York. He was the first dog I had bought. Yankee became my instructor in training. He showed me that once you find the key on how to train how easy and fun it can be. Yankee received his wilderness certification and was ready to go to work. Unfortunately he injured a ligament in his knee, CCL, and this took over three years to heal."
