Besides documenting Tino's life for my own pleasure, and so I can always remember things about him, I also want to document everything with respect to his career as a search dog. I want Tino to be a working dog, and specifically to follow the scent trails of lost dogs, like Kelsy did. It is possible he won't be suitable for this work for some reason, but I will give him the best chance possible to be the best search dog possible. With any search dog, I recommend keeping detailed records of training sessions and actual searches as well. The value of a search dog comes from reliably being able to say what a dog is thinking at a particular moment in the search. Close observation and detailed records can help that.
Tino's life will be chronicled in photos, videos, spreadsheets, and written records. Not all of it will be of interest to all people, but I hope a few people will want to follow Tino throughout his career, and possibly learn from his experience so that future search dogs can be trained better. I'm sure there will be plenty of cute and funny episodes, and people can skip over the boring details if they choose.
Tino is ten weeks old tomorrow. He weighs about 22 pounds, I think. Here is the video of this morning's walk. https://youtu.be/W4WmE7iZhlk
