Christoph Rosenberger started as a Search and Rescue area search dog handler in 1998 and soon trained area and disaster search dogs himself.
As well as working on numerous cases in the vicinity of Vienna, Christoph’s biggest success was a mission to Algeria in 2003 after an earthquake. Christoph and his search dog located an 11 year-old girl, who was rescued alive and well with minor injuries after being trapped under rubble for days.
In 2008 Christoph started training mantrailing dogs for Search and Rescue and worked many cases as a handler. In 2014 he was asked to teach for Georgia K9. As a GAK9 military K9 trainer, Christoph has taught Military Special Operations teams in the USA, Police Officers in China, Police and Search and Rescue teams in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Spain and Latvia.
