Search and Rescue Dogs Finding Drowned Persons
Water Search provides the reader with an intricate overview of the training required to prepare search and rescue dogs to find the location of drowned victims. Readers will be amazed at how these highly trained canines alert to their handlers when they detect the scent of a drowned victim. This book describes the specialized world of SAR dogs, water training and search techniques, and provides a glimpse into the world of victim recovery using dogs. A must read for all SAR dog handlers planning to work in a water environment.
From the physical experience of drowning, including information from victims who experienced it and were resuscitated, to using high tech sonar equipment to locate drowned victims, the reader will experience and learn how to work a search and rescue dog in this genre. It includes training & search techniques, equipment (boats, etc.), safety precautions, search reports, and industry protocols in working a water search. These handlers and their dogs bring home the missing drowned person. Some call them Drowning Dogs. Others call them Cadaver Dogs. All call them heroes.
"The strength of Christy Judah's book is the unique level of technical details about the mechanics of water searching. The information about special equipment and how to use it is priceless. While the book does not focus on the actual dog training, it provides all of the information necessary to train a dog successfully. It is a must have for everyone involved in any level of search and rescue." Susan Bulanda, M. A. Certified Animal Behavior Consultant, Adjunct Professor, SAR dog trainer and handler.
