We have added many tools to our toolbox when someone goes missing. In addition to scent dogs and tracking transmitters, we have added Lost Person Behavior profiling and drones to locate missing people or people who wander.

Search Dogs

Tracking/Trailing dogs and cadaver dogs are used to search for missing people. They start their training young and are required to go through obedience and agility. They must pass their AKC Canine Good Citizen test before they can certify for Search and Rescue disciplines
