     In order to properly utilize the canine unit to its full potential, certain guidelines have been established which will help the dogs succeed in their efforts.

In view of the number of individuals involved in the initial search, the following points must be observed if the dog team is to be successful: 

  1. Request assistance as soon as possible.
  2. Secure the area from all unnecessary foot or vehicle traffic.
  3. Do not handle or disturb potential scent articles.

If we can have this assistance to start with, the better our chances are of locating the person. The following information provides guidelines which will help you better understand what needs to occur before you call a dog team.
