About SAR Training
Here at Trinity K9 Search and Rescue we spend an average of 1000 hours of scent training per dog, to get them ready for search and rescue (that does not include obedience training).
Several of the dogs on our team came from American Belgian Malinois Rescue https://www.malinoisrescue.org/
and we are grateful for their assistance in helping us find dogs that were a great fit for Search and Rescue work.
Canines at Trinity K9 Search and Rescue: Izzy, Kate, Raaz, and Orion
Izzy is the star of my search and rescue! She is the first dog that became fully trained and certified in Area Search. She has also motivates me to continue training. She knows a few tricks, like roll over, pray, beg, and crawl. And what she knows best is how to play hide and seek well. Izzy is 3 years old, and I've been working with her since she was 12 weeks. Izzy was our first Mal, and was purchased from European Belgian Malinois,
