This type of training offline costs several hundred dollars, if you can find a qualified Search and Rescue dog trainer, which is not easy to do. I wanted to make this valuable information available at a cost anybody can afford.

You will be learning from one of the few dog trainers in the country who know how to teach a dog to find people and this course teaches you those skills.

The cost of this online course of $129.99 is a faction of the priceless value of another person's life you may one day save with your dog's help.
