Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide quality training and education for the development of capable, well-trained search dog teams.

Hold multi-day workshops that bring in Master Trainers to assist in skills development
Host a resource page on our website with updated information on all aspects of search dog training and education
Hold online support discussion groups for new handlers
Host webinars that provide timely information to search dog handlers

Our team consists of members with extensive search dog training as well as members with expertise in many other areas of search and rescue. Many of our team members have trained multiple search dogs and have deployed on hundreds of missions over the past 20 years.

Because we believe that quality training results in more competent K9s and handlers, we offer in-person training seminars and workshops, as well as online webinars, discussion groups, and opportunities to engage the K9 search and rescue (K9SAR) community in a variety of ways, all geared toward the development of reliable search dog teams.

We are committed to helping improve K9SAR locally, regionally and beyond by maintaining a focus on both the dog and the human end of the leash in our offerings. We open up our weekly trainings to other SAR K9 teams and also dedicate time and resources to educate and improve awareness in the general public of how K9SAR contributes toward finding the lost and missing.
