"Most search and rescue (SAR) dog units do not have a professional dog trainer or behavior consultant to help handlers train their dogs for SAR. Often training methods are handed down from one person to the next and do not work with all dogs. K9 Search and Rescue Troubleshooting addresses the training problems that SAR dog handlers face when training their dogs. Many of the problems are caused by handler error and/or issues that may have occurred in the developmental stages of the dog. K9 Search and Rescue Troubleshooting offers insights on how to solve these problems by explaining canine developmental stages and how they affect the dog's ability to learn and function. The book addresses, in general, how dogs learn, including the latest research about their observational abilities and how these abilities affect the dog's performance. The book also addresses common handler errors and how to find and select the right dog for SAR work."--

Dogs detect scent from a source that is carried to them in a plume by the wind. The most important tool for a detector dog handler to have on searches is a knowledge of scent plume movement or "scent dynamics" (the science of scent movement). Such knowledge resides primarily in scientific journals that are largely inaccessible to detector dog handlers and written in language that is difficult to understand. Detector Dogs and the Science of Scent Movement: A Handler’s Guide to Environments and Procedures retrieves, reviews, and interprets the results of pertinent scientific research on scent dynamics and presents these results in terms that are easier for handlers to understand. Information on the physiology of the dog’s nose, their sense of smell, and the properties of scent provide the essential information on the process of scenting. The composition of training aids for explosives, narcotics, human remains and other sources is discussed. Recommendations are made on the use of training aids, their placement during training, and the resulting availability of scent. Potential problems and handler errors in the use of training aids are also examined. The characteristics of scent plumes and how wind influences their movement are a key focus of the book. The primary task for the handler is to get the dog into the scent plume so that the dog can detect the scent and follow it to the source the handler seeks. As such, a knowledge of scent and scent plume movement will vastly improve the ability of the handler to accomplish this task. The influence of weather and physical settings such as terrain, vegetation, ground cover, soil and water on scent movement are examined in detail. Strategies for searching, detecting, and locating sources in all physical settings are presented. Specific effects associated with hills and mountains, fields and forests, bare soils and soils covered by vegetation, different soil types, and lakes and rivers are examined in detail. This includes specific recommendations are made about weather and physical settings that result in higher probability of success on searches. Detector Dogs and the Science of Scent Movement will be a vital resource for K9 handles in the private and public sectors—including in Homeland Security, law enforcement, and military settings—as well as a useful guide for lawyers, forensic, and investigative professionals who need to better understand K9 operations.

The best positive obedience training program for your pets or working dog. Use proven techniques to: - Train your puppy with basic exercises to prepare for future obedience training. - Correct common problem behaviors, such as barking, bolting, and chewing. - Progress from basic to advanced exercises to ensure your dog is always learning. Obedience is the foundation of any reliable, well-trained dog. Without obedience, working dogs are ineffective in operations and pet dogs can be annoying and possibly a danger to themselves or others. In K9 Obedience Training, certified animal behavior consultant and veteran search and rescue (SAR) dog handler and trainer Susan Bulanda shares the secrets of building an effective obedience training program. SAR dogs need “thinking” obedience: they sometimes need to exercise intelligent disobedience in the field. You can use the same training program for any working or pet dog. For trainers who demand the best obedience training for future working dogs, Susan’s techniques lay the groundwork for success. And pet owners who want to help their dog be easy to be around will find lots of training tips and exercises too, along with straightforward advice on proper handling, grooming, and teaching simple tricks.

The "straightest path" is a simple honest approach to good trailing dog training. Schettler outlines his method for working trailing dogs, step by step, and with only one goal in mind: finding people. The simple truth of the matter is that trailing and tracking dogs do not find what they are looking for on most cases throughout this country. The problems all boil down to training for the dog, the handler, and the search managers. This program was designed for handling a trailing dog, and Jeff has been teaching now for over a decade. Whether you are training for search and rescue, are a K-9 cop, or a tactical team manager, Schettler's advice could save your life, the life of your dog, or that of another person one day.

Modern police officers have an impressive number of tools at their disposal, all of which take some experience to deploy properly. Of all these tools, none is more mysterious and poorly understood than the dog. And while a K9 can be useful in subduing a suspect, 90 per cent of its work involves its nose, not its teeth. This book helps officers outside the K9 unit understand the proper use of dogs in police investigations. Stephen Mackenzie describes the different situations in which a K9 can be helpful, how the dog functions during a search, and what officers can do before and during the search to maximize the chance of success. Each chapter includes a summary of important concepts. Perfect as an introduction to the use of K9s for new police officers or as a quick reference for experienced veterans, this book is a valuable resource for every officer.

With the increasing availability of biological and chemical materials, the threat of terrorism grows daily. Innocent bystanders -the major targets of terrorists because they gain the most publicity - create a vast number of potential victims. In our changing world, horrendous violence has become commonplace. The growth of incidences involving chemical and biological agents has created a need for local response teams to be aware of the dangers they face. Emergency Response to Chemical and Biological Agents serves as a training manual for emergency responders who handle incidents involving biological and chemical hazardous materials. The author covers poisons such as nerve, blood, blister, and choking gases and biological agents such as anthrax, typhus, and cholera. Using examples ripped from the headlines, he explains what is and is not a terrorist act, and the difference in handling each incident. In addition the author explains the standard operating procedures of Hazardous Materials Teams before, during, and after an incident. Whether terrorist act or chemical spill, local responders usually reach the scene first. As these incidents multiply - and they will - these teams will need a blueprint for dealing with chemical and biological materials. Emergency Response to Chemical and Biological Agents provides a clear, concise plan of action for responding to these incidents.
