Training a Working Dog
The work these do is a little easier when the snow is loose. When it is wet or heavy the probabilities of success diminish. Another factor that conditions a good result is the temperature.
In temperatures that are 20 degrees below zero it is difficult for the animals to smell, although there are extraordinary that have been successful in extremely low temperatures with heavy snow. The type of training these get is similar to when they teach to track, especially when they need to dig out objects or people. The training starts with teaching the dog with basic training which is their specialized part that will be done in the high snowy mountain where they will have to work later. The trainers of these are expert skiers and alpinists who know the mountains and who are physically adapted to their work surroundings, the cold, altitude etc.
