Family Disaster Dogs
One of our biggest fears and chores during a disaster is losing or finding a loved one and every dog has the ability to find its family members or friends. Every missing person case is a disaster for the family involved.
I have spent the past 10 years writing and publishing books that have a worldwide following helping many people to learn how to locate missing persons with the use of dogs. As well as prepare for natural disasters and how a dog can assist in emergencies.
The goal here at Family Disaster Dogs is to help everyone stay safe out there!
We encourage and teach families to prepare for disasters with a dog's help.
We train family dogs to find family members using Search and Rescue dog skills.
Upon request, we train Mantrailing K9SAR dogs to FEMA standards.
Feel free to ask for help to train a dog or for resources to help locate missing persons
Amber Higgins is the author of 4 books, blog and lessons that train family dogs to rescue their own family using Search and Rescue skills.
