The Many Rewards and Demands of Search and Rescue

June 1, 2017

“Canine search and rescue demands the ultimate partnership between a dog and a human. Dogs are fast, easily run up and down hillsides, and detect smells that people don’t even know are present. People can read a topographic map, follow the instructions of a search manager, administer first aid, and drive a car. When these human skills are partnered with the skills of a canine, the two become an amazing resource to help search for missing people.”
