The Canine Institute and several other Search and Rescue (SAR) organizations were interested in finding out if telepathy could increase the odds of success at finding someone who is lost and in danger.

The recent tests at the Ascension Church [Appendix A] and the Las Virgenes Water District were successful and confirmed that Search and Rescue operations can be more effective if someone close to the lost person interacts with the search dog and the handler before the search begins.

October 23,2021 - The Las Virgenes Municipal Water (LVMWD) District hosts 5 off-leash SAR experiments

The procedures used at LVMWD were designed to eliminate any possible explanation that the dogs found the "lost people" that day by either Air Scenting, tracking by smelling shed human skin cells that float in the air, or Trailing, searching by smelling the ground for a missing person's scent.

The guidelines required that no scent article related to the "lost person" was presented to the dogs and the dog and handler had no physical contact with the person hiding.

The videos of the tests confirm that the dogs did not "wander around until they picked up their own scent, the owners or a familiar dog in a circle that contains a familiar person or tree or restaurant trash can, and the like." [1]"

Mr. Michael English, Managing Producer Moon Night Productions, took videos of the five off-leash tests at the water district 40-acre maintenance facility. The following area community leaders participated with me in the five important successful experiments:

 John Zhao, P.E., is the Director, Facilities and Operations at Las Virgenes Municipal Water District

 Charles Santos is the principal engineer at Santos Planning & Permitting

 Gail Lowe is a Coldwell Banker Realty real estate agent serving Malibu, CA and the surrounding areas.

Michael, John, Charles, and Gail had this to say about their experience:

 In all my years of production I have never witness anything like the events that happen on October 23rd, 2021 at 4232 Las Virgenes Rd in Calabasas, California.

 Even though I was a complete non-believer (whoo-hoo), we started out. To my complete astonishment, Frazier started off at a quick pace, sometimes running, and went directly to the driveway, on a different street from where we started, with no indication from me.

 I had the amazing experience of witnessing dogs' ability to find people using their telepathic communication ability.

 Hunter found me through an opening in the back of the metal shed.

The recent tests at The Church and the LVMWD confirmed that if there is a connection with the dog and handler the success of finding a lost person is improved significantly. If you want more proof of The Reality of ESP, then consider the test I did with my daughter, Mary over a year ago at the Topanga Mall.

She had just returned from an extended stay in England and had not been in the mall for years. Hunter had never been to the Topanga Mall; therefore, there is no possibility that he was familiar with the terrain. Mary dropped me off at the bottom level in the garage and drove off to hide by entering the mall from another entrance. The video documents that Hunter did not follow the path of the car; but rather, went into the mall and began to pull me taking a deliberate path, not wandering around, until he found a unique route to the Target store and picked up her scent.

I paid Samuel "Buck" Allen, Head Trainer Custom Canine Unlimited to analyze the video and confirm that no scenting, trailing, or tracking was involved until the end when "Hunter did show a change of behavior after passing the aisle on which Mary was located (time stamp 4:55)." Click here to watch the video (Hunter finds my daughter in the Topanga Mall), the first few minutes is a summary followed by 9 minutes of the entire story.

The Canine Institute report confirms that I "allowed Hunter to choose the direction of travel" and "at no point, prior to being in the Target, does Hunter appear to be working human odor" In conclusion " as to the question as to how Hunter came to be in the Target store, I am unclear, Mr. Gransville stated that Hunter had never been in the Topanga Mall, therefore place association is not relevant."

There are 13 stories about Hunter published at OpEdNews. Five of the links below:

[1] Notice how the "scent" experts come up with the ridiculous explanation for how the dogs found someone when there isn't really a scent explanation: Bonnie Beaver, the executive director of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists and a professor at Texas A&M University writes:

"An eleven-mile distance is actually not terribly long for a dog," says "If the dog had walked both from and back to his home he'd be following his own scent trail." In this case, the dog was instead probably following an equally compelling smell: that of its owner, a type of navigation that is entirely possible over long distances as long as the wind is right. Dogs extend their scent range by moving among overlapping circles of familiar scents-much the way cell phone coverage relies on interconnected footprints from different cell towers. A dog that wanders out of its own immediate range might pick up the scent of, say, a familiar dog in the next circle. That might point it to a circle that contains a familiar person or tree or restaurant trash can, and so on."

Notice she does admit the dog needs the dog's or his owners scent trail to follow and the wind needs to be right.

Appendix A

I did an off-leash test at the Ascension Lutheran Church and School Campus at 1600 and 1620 E Hillcrest Dr, in Thousand Oaks CA that was a simulation of the dog that walked 11 miles from its new home to return to its old home, but with a variation because in my test Hunter and I had NEVER been inside the grounds of the Ascension Church and School campus. The dog or cat finding their way home at least was going back to a location where the animal has a homing instinct; a location where the animal is familiar with the surrounding terrain and has a connection with the person at the "home."

Hunter found a lost person in a "home" (hiding place) that the person (I) and the dog (Hunter) had never been to, and in a location that neither the dog or the person had ANY familiarity with the terrain.
