Bishop, CA—Starting November 1, 2014 Bonefide Dog Training will be closing its doors at 162 West Line Street in Bishop, and instead will be offering classes in various outdoor locations throughout Bishop and Mammoth.

“This is a great opportunity to go back to our roots and take classes outdoors, which is where we started the business.” explains Nancy Hardy, Owner and Trainer at Bonefide Dog Training. “Outdoor classes allow us to focus more energy on training, which is the heart and soul of our business.”

New locations for classes will be posted on the Class Schedule Calendar on Bonefide Dog Training’s web site, www.bonefidedogtraining.com as well as on their Facebook page.

Starting November 8th , Nancy will be offering two classes; Bonefide Basic Class which is a beginning dog training class for dogs 6 months and older who have had no prior training. This basic training class will run from 11am -12pm every Saturday for 6 weeks. And the Puppy Kindergarten is a class for puppies 10 to 17 weeks. This class will run from 1:30pm-2:30pm every Saturday for 6 weeks.

Nancy Hardy has been successfully training dogs for seven years and as a graduate of Animal Behavior College (ABC) has earned her certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. ABC is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school.

For the past seven years, over 300 local canines have become better family members through Bonefide Dog Training. Raven Angeles confirms, “These classes are helpful should either you or your dog need a refresher on any topic or just want to extend class socialization.  It’s not always work, Nancy teaches educational, thinking and exercise games to keep your dog happy and healthy.”

Fourth Annual Shop-with-a-Cop, December 13th

DONATIONS SOUGHT FOR SHOP-WITH-A-COP

Members of the Mammoth Lakes Police Department, Mono County Sheriff’s Office, Bishop Police Department, and Inyo County Sheriff’s Office and other criminal justice agencies are busy planning the fourth annual Shop-with-a-Cop, scheduled for Saturday, December 13.  This is a special day where local law enforcement helps families in the Eastern Sierra have a nice Christmas.  Children from disadvantaged families are identified by the various departments.  On Saturday morning, the children are picked up at their homes by the police officer “partner” and taken to breakfast.

After breakfast, they respond code three (red lights and siren) from breakfast to K-Mart in Bishop where they are each provided with $200 to shop for Christmas for their families.  After shopping, volunteers wrap the gifts and the officers and their new partner travel home where an early Christmas celebration begins.

K-Mart has been very generous in providing additional gift cards and all the wrapping materials.

The goal is to provide Christmas for 50 families in the Eastern Sierra.  That means $10,000 must be raised.  Various organizations and individuals have provided funds, more are needed.  Anyone interested in making a donation may drop it off at either the Mammoth Lakes Police Department or Bishop Police Department.  Checks should be made to MLPOA with “Shop-with-a-Cop” written in the “For” line.

And, if anyone is having a difficult time getting into the spirit of the holidays, drop by K-Mart around ten in the morning on December 13 and volunteer to wrap gifts.  It’s guaranteed you’ll leave feeling much better about yourself!

South County Search & Rescue Command Center Dedication

Dedication Ceremony, Lone Pine

On Saturday October 18th the South County Search and Rescue (SAR) Command Center, located at the Lone Pine Airport, was officially unveiled and dedicated to soon-to-be-retired Undersheriff, and longtime SAR Commander, Keith Hardcastle.

The building once served as a Forest Service helicopter base center. When the Forest Service transferred their operations to the Independence airport, the building was used mainly as storage.  About six months ago the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office acquired the badly damaged building, and with the help from inmate labor and volunteer SAR members transformed the dilapidated building into a functional command center for south-county SAR operations.

Undersheriff Keith Hardcastle began his career in 1985 as an Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputy; he has been a SAR Coordinator since 1994.  “When I began as a Coordinator for SAR it was a different era – there were no cell phones, no on-the-fly mapping technology; map and compass was how we got the job done,” said Hardcastle.

Sheriff Lutze went on to say that, “Undersheriff Hardcastle has been involved in countless SAR missions and his scope and depth of knowledge in local terrain has saved many lives.  His legacy when he retires on December 30th will be leaving behind a highly trained and dedicated SAR team made up of volunteers and Sheriff’s Deputies who are both hardworking and knowledgeable. Undersheriff Hardcastle has been instrumental in training new coordinators and the Search and Rescue team will be in excellent hands with Deputy Nate Derr and Deputy Brian Hohenstein.”
