“I don’t remember a dog of this breed winning in the history of this championship. It’s a curiousity,“ said Iveta Lipovská, head of the Bratislava Cynologic Rescuing Brigade. Chester is a hunting dog, predetermined to search for animals.

“It’s not easy to teach the dog that we are looking for humans, not animals,” explained Lipovská. In the contest, the dog has to find three people in a 4 hectare area in 30 minutes.

The dog has to go right there, where his trainer sends him. He should be orientated according to airflow, know how to use smells and interpret them,” added Lipovská.

Chester has been already trained for ten years and is a specialist in sport rescuing.
