Good until March 30, 2019
Help my new book get into major book stores and major outlets by pre-ordering from my publisher today so all children and parents can learn how to ask the household puppy dog to find mom or the child if they are lost or separated.

"My Puppy Can Find Me" children picture book with UK dog cartoonist Helen Scotty King illustrations will be released later this year and in the meantime to say Thank you for all pre-orders from my publisher, I will send you a free copy of my other book, "Evacuate with Your Dog's Help-Survival Bag List"

Let's all show children and parents that the family dog knows how to find them if they are lost.

It's not hard because your dogs find you everyday when they are hungry or want to play. This simple book shows children this valuable talent our dogs have.

The more pre-orders and interest a book gets during publishing and launching the better chance it has, out of the many thousands of books that come out daily, to be picked up by stores such as Walmart, Target and Barns & Noble who don't have the space to carry all books.

After you order from Waldorf Publisher, send proof of order to me at contact@familydisasterdogs.com to get your gift book sent out.

Thank you and please share

Interesting Search Dog Facts

Did you know 1 dog equals 100 humans ?

Interesting Search Dog Facts



Did you know 1 trained search dog equals 100 trained human rescuers?

That's right one well trained search dog can cover more ground in less time then one hundred highly trained and skilled human searchers.

Plus we humans cannot use our nose to help  :)




Did you know a dog can learn to find a person who has enter a car and driven down a highway for many miles ?

Here's how,

*I am writing this in simple terms for an easier understanding as this subject is very complex.

When a person is in a car, the person's scent particles are in the air inside the car.

All cars have air vent systems that recirculate fresh air from outside of the car to the inside of the car.

When the air is recirculated the scent particles are carried out of the car and come to rest along the roadway.

A dog can find the scent particles and follow the trail of the car as easily as if the person was walking


Another Interesting Fact

My "Rea Valley's Incredible Sue" Bloodhound

Search dogs and Bloodhounds in particular will take the shortest route to a person and the way the dog goes may not be anywhere near where the subject actually walked.

How is this possible?

Here's how,

Air currents can carry a person's scent over valleys and hollows, through openings in brush or into impressions in the earth's surface as well as indoors or around a house. Wherever the wind currents can reach so can the scent particles.

A person might walk all the way around a valley or a low spot in the country side because they do not want to climb down and back up the other side and if a dog is sent to find them, the dog might cut across the valley or low spot making a straight bee line for the subject.

Or, a short cut because the person is on the other side, much closer actually to the dog as the fresh scent is coming to the dog across the way or as the crow flies.


One More Great Fact


The fresher the scent the faster a dog will work when trailing or tracking ( yes there is a difference read about it on the tracking page). The closer they get the more excited the dogs are because the scent is fresher, closer and more enticing.
