 September 9, 2014 - From Jeff Schettler at Georgia K9 National Training Center.  (Hannya is one of our pups from Zeus and Layla's 2013 litter):  Matthew Turner and his GAK9 Hound Hannya make another catch...this time a double!
The Tracker Team was dispatched to an hour and a half old stolen vehicle bail out call last night with two suspects on the run. During their flight the suspects also burglarized a church before fleeing on foot once again. K9 Hannya was scented off the scene and trailed through two separate neighborhoods and over 2.5 miles, (4 KM). She and her Tracker Team located the suspects hiding in a camper trailer they broke into. Great team, hound, and handler!

July 26, 2014 - Check out this video of Arya, one of Ellie May's pups is working it for Georgia K9 NTC!

July 24, 2014 - Hannya did it again! (Zeus / Layla pup)  From Jeff Schettler of Georgia K9 National Training Center - Matthew Turner and his GAK9 Hound Hannya caught another one last night! The suspect fled from deputies on the freeway in South Georgia and then wrecked his ride near an off ramp. Thinking the swamp was his friend, the criminal did not count on a vengeful Hannya on his trail. Hannya, Matt and their K9 fugitive hunter team trailed the suspect through the swamp having to swim in places and then into thick woods. They located the subject hiding near a convenience store. This guy met his match with a true swamp monster. Good job Matt, Hannya, and team! You guys rock!

July 8, 2014 - Georgia K9 National Training Center chose Arya (Phoebe) for their training program!

February 7, 2014 - Hannya and handler, Matt Turner of Camden County Georgia, did it AGAIN.  This girl is on fire!  This just in from Hannya's trainer, Jeff Schettler, Georgia K9 NTC:

Search and Rescue BloodhoundIt's always nice to have a smiling suspect in handcuff's guy in all black with his hands behind his back. Here is the story from Deputy Matthew Turner:

The case started when we received information of a possible murder suspect that was in a broke down vehicle on Interstate 95. When deputies arrived on scene, they observed a white male in a dark hoodie run to the east side of the interstate into the woods. We arrived on scene and began trailing. It took what felt like forever, but we caught him. Hannya came to an area in the woods adjacent to the marsh and began showing scent pool behavior. The suspect was spotted walking through the marsh approximately a half a mile from our location. It was in the marsh we were able to run him down and take him into custody. The suspect was in constant contact with subjects we had in custody. He was sending messages stating gotta go the dogs are on top of me. He sent several similar messages throughout the trail.

Turns out the charge of murder never stuck, the offense ended up being for a stolen vehicle. This trail was a total team effort, K-9, tactical runners, perimeter units, and helicopter. Everyone involved played a vital role in apprehending this guy. Russell Prescott, Daniel O'neal, Devon Carter, Danny Sikes, and the rest of the Bloodhound Tracking Team. And of course Hannya. Total time on trail was approximately 2.5 hours.

"There is no hunting like the hunting of a man"

January 14, 2014 - The practice of tracking wounded deer with a leashed dog is legal in 27 states...but not in Iowa.  If you are interested in helping us change this law follow us on our Iowa Blood Trackers Facebook page!

January 4, 2014 - From Jeff Schettler of Georgia K9 NTC: And another find today for another one of our kennel dogs, Hannya! This one is still on the press but the short story is Hannya found a missing and at risk disabled child today. I will post the story as soon as Matthew Turner lets us know them. Great job Matt! Can't wait to hear the details. Thanks Lori Hansen for giving me your Pick last year! She's solving crime and saving lives!  Here's the story from Matthew Turner:

Brother, I love this hound. Got a call this afternoon about a 19 year old mentally handicapped deaf female who left her residence after a fight with her mother. No one knew where she went and did not provide a time frame for her departure. The family could only advise she was wearing a red sweatshirt and pants when she left, but did advise her Mickey Mouse doll was missing. Started Hannya off a jacket she was wearing earlier that day and we took off. Trailed to patch of woods near the marsh in a nearby neighborhood. Once In the woods, Hannya started picking her pace up. We trailed approximately 200 yards into the woods and Hannya rounded a big old Oak tree. The girl was sitting on the other side of the tree, and when the girl saw Hannya, she began running . Lost sight of the girl, but Hannya worked it out and we caught up to her about 50 yards later. She was an emotional wreck, but said through her mother (interpreter) she was happy to see us. And also said she ran because she is afraid of dogs. Thank you guys for such a great Hound, and also for some of the best trailing training I have ever experienced.  ...Sgt. Matthew R. Turner

Search and Rescue Bloodhound PuppiesDecember 21, 2013 - From Jeff Schettler of Georgia K9 NTC: "Early morning manhunt through the swamps...robbery suspects on the loose and dangerous. Manhunter team hot on their trail with bloodhound Hannya hell bent for leather, on their scent like stink on crap. River crossings in chest deep water and over an hour of constant trailing only to find the hardened criminals huddling for warmth after getting lost in a place they should not have been in the first place. Three lessons to be learned by fools such as these: 1) Don't come to this hounds' ground and foot bail...you will get caught. 2) The swamps are a dangerous place. 3) They were lucky to leave walking...Excellent Job Matt and Hannya!"

December 5, 2013 - From Jeff Schettler of Georgia K9 NTC:  Hannya and Deputy Matt Turner make their first find together!  "Our little girl Hannya has grown so fast. Not even a year old yet she just completed her handlers course with veteran bloodhound handler, Matt Turner Camden County Sheriff's Office and already they made their first find together! Here is their story: "It was a vehicle bail out, white male juvenile. Got a good scent article, and she did fantastic. Started in a wooded area went approximately 75 yards and had to cross a four lane highway. She crossed it no problem, picked the scent up in the ditch, and into the woods we went. Continued trailing for maybe 500 yards, then I saw the suspect running across a clear cut. When he hit the woods on the other side of the clear cut, it was a short patch of woods. Perimeter units were right there waiting. Man I love this Hound."  Way to go Team Hannya!
