This type of Search Dog training offline costs several hundred dollars for qualified dogs and persons, if you can find a qualified Search and Rescue dog trainer, which is not easy to do.
I have trained many search dogs and handlers over the years and I wanted to make this valuable information available at a cost anybody can afford plus I wrote the book Family Disaster Dogs which brings this specialized dog training home to the average dog owner to use themselves when first responders and rescuers are unable to reach you and you have to take care of yourselves and loved ones.
The cost of this online course of $149.99 is a faction of the price of another person's life you may one day save with your dog's help.
