Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Toller, excellent family pet, search and rescue, hunting, dog, puppy, litter

Three of our dogs are certified Avalanche Dogs and/or Wilderness SAR dogs. This is a very demanding job for both the handler and the dog.

SAR dogs detect human scent by airscenting or tracking. The dogs may be called into service for a person lost in the wilderness or lost under a pack of snow after an avalanche.

Training is rigorous and time consuming. Training for the handler includes first aid, survival techniques, search planning and management and lost person behavior among other things. Dogs must be trained to either follow a track or airscent through woods, fields, urban and wilderness settings. Dogs must be certified before they can take part in a search and then are re-certified annually.
