Search and Rescue

Our Search and Rescue dog training is progressive and taught by active search and rescue dog handlers. Our dogs are trained in some of the most rigorous environments on the east coast. Some of the dogs that we have trained have proven themselves during disasters such as tornados, Hurricane Katrina, and other natural and man made disasters across the country. At ScentWorks we understand that the majority of Search and Rescue Dog handlers and teams across the country operate on a volunteer basis. Therefore, we offer affordable dogs and training to meet the needs of most handlers and teams. All of our Search and Rescue dog programs come with a comprehensive handler course and all course materials. Our goal is to provide each handler and team with all of the necessary tools and knowledge to be a productive and effective Search and Rescue Dog Team. If you already own a dog that you are considering for search and rescue training, give us a call and we will be happy to assist you in evaluating your dog for search and rescue training and setting up a training program that fits your needs. We often train Search and Rescue Dogs for private individuals, as well as members of fire, police and sheriff’s departments. Our instructors are volunteer search and rescue K-9 handlers and certified by the National Association for Search and Rescue. As such, we are able to provide you with fully trained search and rescue dogs in a variety of breeds. We also offer comprehensive Search and Rescue Dog Trainers Courses and Certification Programs for those interested in becoming a trainer for their team, training their own SAR dog or pursuing a career in training Search and Rescue Dogs.
