Family Disaster Dogs



This book tells you how your 
family dog can come to your aid during a Disaster.

Every dog has the ability to find its family members or friends.

Dogs do this on their own everyday without us noticing.

Hi and welcome to Family Disaster Dogs. I wanted to tell you a little bit about this blog and welcome you to share the information with friends and family so everybody can learn more about why and how we should be ready in case a disaster or emergency ever hits. 

The dog training and emergency preparedness lessons on this blog are from the Family Disaster Dog Book which I wrote while posting on this blog. When I first got the idea for the book I wanted to get the lessons out to you and everybody sooner then the time it would require to put a book together and find a publisher.

I felt a need to get this valuable information to everybody as soon as I could so I started posting lessons here soon after beginning the book.

I started writing the book while living on the Oregon coast in 2011. The whole town and coast line were evacuated and under Tsunami warning from the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. The book was finished and published in 2015 by Tate Publishing. 

There are several more lessons included in the Family Disaster Dog book and a list of the items to pack in the dog backpack discussed in these lessons.

I'm working on a Family Survival Dog book to be published next.

You can get a signed print version of the Family Disaster Dog book from me directly via the contact page button above and I will throw in free poster !
