Community Canine Search and Rescue Teams at Your Service

Click Here to Add a Title

When things go bad in the wild and people get stuck, we have trained search and rescue volunteers ready to deploy and rescue them. The success of these missions is dependent upon the skill and training of our volunteers, who form the backbone of all our rescue operations. We offer training that teaches volunteers various skills such as:

o Wilderness Survival - skills and techniques that a person may use in order to sustain life in any type of environment be it natural or man-made. These techniques are meant to provide basic necessities for human life which include water, food, and shelter.

o First Aid - the assistance given to any person suffering an illness or injury, with care taken to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and to promote recovery.

o Medical Operations - to provide the greatest good for greatest number of people by conducting triage and rapid treatment such as: clearing the airway, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock.

o Team Organization - to organize volunteers who are involved in performing the shared/individual tasks of the mission as well as achieving the shared/individual goals and objectives for the purpose of accomplishing the mission and producing its results.

o Fire Safety - the practice of mitigating the unwanted effects of potentially destructive fires.

Generally, the Boondocks K-9 Search and Rescue - Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) members and volunteers are educated and trained to specifically assist during any type of disaster situation.

The Reason of BOONDOCKS K9 S.A.R

Not all SAR (search and rescue) dogs perform the same type of search. 

The types of searches overlap, and the distinction is in the training process and how the dog participates in missions.


• Tracking or trailing dogs work with their nose to the ground. They follow a trail of human scent -- typically heavy skin particles that fall quickly to the ground or onto bushes -- through any type of terrain. These dogs are not searching, they're following: Tracking dogs need a last seen starting point, an article with the person's scent on it to work from and an uncontaminated trail. For this type of work, time is an issue. The sooner a dog can start the better.

• Air-scent dogs work with their nose in the air. They pick up human scent anywhere in the vicinity -- they don't need a last seen starting point, an article to work from or a scent trail, and time is not an issue. Whereas tracking dogs follow a particular scent trail, air-scent dogs pick up a scent carried in air currents and seek out its origin, the point of greatest concentration.

• Air-scenters might specialize in a particular type of search, such as:

o Cadaver - specifically search for the scent of human remains, detecting the smell of human decomposition gasses in addition to skin rafts. Cadaver dogs can find something as small as a human tooth or a single drop of blood.

o Water - search for drowning victims by boat. When a body is under water, skin particles and gases rise to the surface, so dogs can smell a body even when it's completely immersed. Typically, more than one SAR team searches the area of interest, and divers use each dog's alert point, along with water-current analysis, to estimate the most likely location of the body.

o Urban disaster - The most difficult SAR specialty, urban disaster dogs search for human survivors in collapsed buildings. They must navigate dangerous, unstable terrain.

o Wilderness - search for human scent in a wilderness setting.
