Hello, my name is Patrick and I am a Paramedic. I just got a black lab puppy and plan to train her to be a K9 SAR. I have connections to a SAR K9 team and have decided its something i want to do. in my area there is no SAR teams per say and there is no SAR dogs what so ever. Any tips, advice, pointers from any one ?

I am new to this group and am so glad to find others with same interest. I currently have a K9 that is wilderness SAR certified and we are working on finishing up our USAR certification. I have approached my EMS agency that I work for about starting up a K9 USAR/SAR team. My trainer is great and has been helping me start on SOPs. I was wondering if anyone out there has already been through this with their agency, has any ideas, or any direction on how to get this started? I have a lot of information and ideas, just not sure how or where to direct them.

I am a Navy Fleet Marine Force Corpsman, and am looking for information on treating possible injuries that I may run into dealing with K9's. Any suggestions on training or books that might be helpful?

When i was actively training, a K9 first-aid course was always a handler requirement and we always tried to have an emergency contact for a vet in the area of whatever activity was taking place. Thankfully most of their mishaps could be handled with whats in the individual or team K9 first-aid kit; sliced paws, thorns, minor lacs, and the "ounce of prevention vs a lb of cure" on the part of the handler; not directing the dog into hazardous areas like old garbage dumps/cliffs/swift water etc. when not necessary. Sprains, strains or other injuries that call for some degree of immobilization *need to be trained for*; the dog tolerating being carried for any distance say, over the shoulders of its handler or laying quietly on a make-shift stretcher being dragged back to base, that sort of thing.
