As their description indicates, Human Remains Detection dogs find human remains. Unfortunately, not all searches are for living people and sometimes people do not survive after becoming lost. However, finding all missing people is of the utmost importance and our dogs are trained for that purpose. HRD dogs can work on leash or off and in the wilderness or smaller specific locations such as fields, yards and buildings. When the HRD Dog locates human remains it performs a trained “alert” such as sitting or laying down. Training an HRD dog takes additional care. They are trained using actual human remains donated to our unit by individuals and groups who appreciate the value of such dogs to our community. HRD Dogs are trained on a wide variety of tissue based material. These dogs are trained to alert only on human remains as opposed to animal remains.
