 About the Book 

Tracking for search and rescue not only requires that the dog be trained to follow the human scent exclusively, but that he be able to begin tracking in a variety of circumstances, from a variety of scent sources, and in almost any type of terrainMoreTracking for search and rescue not only requires that the dog be trained to follow the human scent exclusively, but that he be able to begin tracking in a variety of circumstances, from a variety of scent sources, and in almost any type of terrain and conditions. Most importantly, however, training a search and rescue dog means sacrificing precision of tracking form for speed and accuracy on the track, in situations where every minute may count in finding search victims and saving their lives.Tracking for Search and Rescue Dogs gives practical advice on every facet of training dogs for this vital work, from choosing dogs to training tracklayers, from basic training to training with complex search scripts. This book is geared to preparing dog and handler for real search situations.
