Types of Search Dogs

Tracking Dogs - basically follow the subject's footsteps. They are oriented to the mixture of human scent and ground disturbance where
they walked.

Trailing Dogs - are oriented to the cells that have fallen to the ground along the subject's route. This dog may work some distance from
the actual trail due to wind conditions.

Air Scent Dogs - can work very large areas off lead. These dogs are oriented to airborne human scent and work into the wind. Air Scent
dogs can be worked at night. Most Air Scent dogs do a recall/refind. When the dog finds the subject, they return to the handler, indicate
or tell them they found someone and lead the handler back to the subject.

HRD (Human Remains Detection) -These K-9s are trained to find bodies that have been buried, hung, burned, submerged or
scattered in an area. These dogs can work over land and water that is several feet deep. Our HRD dogs have specialized training and
experience in Water Recovery, Crime Scene Investigation and Cold Cases.
