Default SAR Dogs from SoDak



Good day everyone,

My wife and I have been training our GSD (Ruger, on the right side) in search and rescue trailing. I am a member of my county search and rescue team. She hopes to certify him this summer. We recently were given the young puppy on the left, (Remy). We know almost nothing about him, but are told he is a purebred GSD. He was given to a family as a present. We have started his training and hope he will make a fine HRD dog.

Welcome to the forum. Be sure to post your training adventures in the SAR section of the forum as well! I am on my 2nd HRD dog.

Nancy, will do. No doubt there is much we can learn from you and your team. Our hardest thing is getting source material, but we do have two placentas.

Training aids are hard to come by for most of us. (I tend not to talk about supplies OR searches on the boards....unless the post is a link to a newspaper article then not talking about any details...same thing with training videos....destroyed as soon as they are reviewed....lawyers )

That sounds like fun! What is the benefit of training your dog in search and rescue?

It provides a service to the community. Dogs trained in search and rescue are a tool to help first responders find a living or deceased person (depending on what skill the dog is trained in) who are lost or missing.

And this is completely on a volunteer basis?
