Congratulations Suzanne and Kili!

We are so incredibly proud of our fearless leader, Suzanne and her K9 partner Kili!  This fabulous team was certified in Human Remains Detection search by the National Search Dog Alliance, which is not a small feat!  This certification comes just months after their first IPWDA Land HRD Certification and Kili’s second birthday.  Suzanne, Kili and the rest of the CSD team would like to send a huge thanks to Michelle Schireman for taking the time to evaluate and setting up all of the different testing elements!  #sniffsearchsave  #sark9 #sar  #hrd  #labsofinstagram #searchdogsofig 

K9 Monet is one of the featured dogs in a new book!

We are so excited to see that CSD K9 Monet is one of the featured dogs in Holly Cook’s new book – “Send Me: Working Dogs of the Pacific Northwest”!

Monet and his handler Candice are members of both Cascadia Search Dogs and Northwest Disaster Search Dogs.  We are excited to continue working with Monet and Candice as they pursue their passion for search dog work and contribution to community.

Search Theory for K9 Teams

NEW! Search Theory for K9 Teams Class Series

This Spring The Washington State SAR Planning Unit (WASSPU) and Cascadia Search Dogs (CSD) have partnered to present a free three-part web-hosted (Zoom) training series on Search Theory for K9 Teams. We will be running a pilot on May 7, 14 & 21 between 6pm – 7:30 pm PST. Our initial target audience is K9 handlers who are or have been in leadership positions and who preferably are active in HRD (though the content of the course applies to other disciplines as well).

You can see more information on the class series here: Search Theory for K9 Teams Flyer

Registration for the initial series will be limited. Additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list for future classes.
