Synopsis: Professional search and rescue workers consider Susan Bulanda’s Ready! Training the Search and Rescue Dog the bible of Search and Rescue (SAR),” the most sought-after book of its kind detailing canine search and rescue. This second edition, expanded and revised with new color photography, provides readers with the necessary training methods for dogs in various SAR disciplines, including wilderness, evidence, cadaver, water, avalanche, and disaster searches. The author, an experienced SAR professional, details the goals, target skills, and potential problems at each training level of every SAR discipline.

Ready! provides descriptions of every type of search, including specific training methods to accomplish each SAR discipline. Professional and volunteer SAR workers will profit from the Bulandas’ expertise on training the dog to alert, managing the search mission, choosing and socializing a SAR dog, and how to train dogs for specific commands (such as bar, turn around, go to an object, check, slow, crawl through and others). Readers curious about the fascinating work of the SAR canine will enjoy the general chapters about the history of SAR, an explanation of how dogs use scent to locate people or objects, and the functions of the SAR dog.

This highly specialized training manual offers precise direction for SAR workers for every possible kind of mission, identifying the goals, target skills, methods and problem solving for each type of search. Color photographs and line drawings help to elucidate difficult concepts explained in the text. A resources section and index conclude this 254-page volume.

About the Author: Susan Bulanda has been a dog trainer and behavior consultant since 1962. She is a dedicated member of the National Search Dog Alliance, Dog Writers Association of America, and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants as their former Vice President. More recently, Susan Bulanda and her husband Larry formed the Coventry Canine Search and Rescue, which merged with the Phoenixville Fire Department to become the Phoenixville FD K-9 SAR Unit.
