Synopsis: An inside look at the fascinating world of search-and-rescue dogs.
From the Back Cover:
The images of heroic dogs working to find victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks captured the hearts of Americans - and brought attention to the important role that these working dogs play in our nation. In addition to these high profile "disaster dogs," the United States has a wealth of search dogs performing critical and often surprising jobs. You may know of law enforcement and military dogs that sniff out bombs, drugs, land mines, and criminals-but you'll also find professional and volunteer dog teams that are instrumental in finding lost or abducted children, identifying unmarked Civil War gravesites, recovering avalanche victims, discovering dangerous gas line leaks, or pulling drowning swimmers to shore, or detecting termites in your new home. Search dogs have even been used to find skin cancer with better accuracy than doctors!Search-dog trainer and photographer Jen Bidner brings her knowledge of the field to Dog Heroes, the first book to celebrate these brave dogs and their handlers and highlight their capabilities with dramatic photographs. In addition to rousing real-life tales, Bidner writes about the history of canine search and rescue, complete with photos and artwork from the turn of the century. She reveals the wide range of breeds being successfully used as search dogs, from the small and feisty Jack Russell terrier to the huge 150-pound Newfoundland. Dozens of breeds are featured here, including many mixed-breeds rescued from shelters. Detailed information on getting started in canine search and rescue rounds out this terrific book. (8 1/4 x 8 1/4, 144 pages, color photos)Jen Bidner is an active member of the volunteer Canine (K9) Search & Rescue community, training her own dogs and moderating an online training newsgroup of dog handlers worldwide. Author of numerous books on photography, including The Lighting Cookbook, she is former Editor-in-Chief of Peterson's Photographic magazine and Outdoor & Travel Photography magazine.
