Teach a dog to look for lost or missing persons
|Family Disaster Dogs Daisy and Willie|
This dog training lesson is easy to do at home and teaches a dog to use an article belonging to the missing or lost person to find that person.
In dog work this is considered and often called scent discrimination because the dog learns to smell the "scent article" and look only for that scent or person.
To get Started

- Your dog
