How to Train Your Pet Dog To Find You in a Emergency
|She always knows where I am|
This Family Disaster Dog lesson will tell you how to teach your family or any dog to find you during or after a natural disaster or emergency. A few of the search dog training books on the market recommend beginning training a search dog of any breed and trailing dogs to find their handler or owner first as a way to start the dog to do tracking and air scenting.
While I’m sure this method works fine, I believe with many other search dog trainers that dogs naturally find or return to their handlers without any training and most of this lesson is apparent in all search dog training sessions if the handler pays attention or reads their dog then they will see the dog completing this lesson when the dog returns to them without being told.
Our dogs come to us often during the day, they find us no matter where we are when it’s feeding time, bedtime or walk time. This natural instinct to find us when they want us can be used to our advantage during an emergency or disaster situation.
There’s two ways you can teach your dog to find you, one is without any other tracking or search dog training and the other way is by adding this lesson to your dog’s tracking, air scenting or trailing lessons.
For those of you wish to train your dog to find you without using any of the other lessons on this site you can follow the directions below. Other dog owners who have been following the lessons here at Family Disaster Dogs can add this lesson into any of their training sessions.
This lesson can be taught to any dog at any age, even young puppies, on and off a leash.
