Jo originally joined the team back in 2007 with her Border Collie Bracken. Sadly, Bracken developed an injury which took her out of search and Jo left the team for a short time but rejoined in 2019 with a Welsh Collie called Amber. Jo works for Horsham District Council in the Planning Department, and having lived in Horsham her whole life, has recently moved to Eastergate near Chichester. Jo loves nothing more than being out in the fresh air walking with her dogs - Cornish beach walks are her happy place. Jo enjoys teaching Amber lots of tricks but search training is what really bonds them as a team.
Amber is a 3 year old welsh collie and is Jo’s second trainee search dog. Amber enjoys being outdoors in all weathers and loves nothing more than finding something smelly to roll in - much to Jo’s disgust! When she’s not search training, Amber can be found playing ball on the beach, walking in the woods, having a rough and tumble with her younger brother Munro (a border collie), or snoozing on the sofa. Amber would like world peace and for all the bangs to be taken out of fireworks.
