A lot of us do things to fix up our own property for training -- all our teammates with land have some thing or another.
Thanks for the good advice. I will check around and see what the teams say.

I am located around Pittsburgh. I am not sure which part of the SAR we are going to do but also will be doing personal protection as well. I am going to join a team but just wanted to do training on the side and also for other dogs to train (non-SAR)

jocoyn I would recommend if you want to do SAR you join a team. Even if you set up a private training area, the reality is you have to train in many many many different locations. You do what the rest of us do. Have a hefty liability policy, connections with law enforcement, and secure permission to train on public and private lands.

The typical SAR person spends several thousand dollars a year of their own money doing this. It is great you want to fix up your property but I would suggest anyone who wants to donate money for SAR purposes find a search team that is a 501(c)3, and not a private individual to contribute to. All our teams could always use more money!

K9 Training Grounds

I am starting to train my dog to become a search and rescue dog but do not have adequate room to practice, other than the classes which are 45min away and not everyday. Looking to build a training ground for my dog and also a few friends of mine to practice.
