Leslie Mckittrick

Leslie McKittrick lives in Bozeman, MT and has retired from her 24 year career as a nutrition counselor with the Montana WIC Program.  She has volunteered with Western Montana Search Dogs and Gallatin County SAR as a dog handler and HAM Radio operator for over fifteen years. She is currently working Tellen, the family’s 4th SAR dog.


Tellen “Telly” is a happy, lovable goofball.  He loves giving kisses and “puppy eyes” when he wants pets.  Telly started his puppy training at 7 weeks when we took breaks on our drive home from his breeder. His preference is trailing but put his work vest on and he’s game for anything. Telly is also Avalanche certified with Leslie’s husband, Ladean, another WMSD handler.   

Leslie & Telly are certified in:

Water: Shore
