Family Disaster Dogs

 Family Disaster Dogs

Letter from the founder,

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. These books and lessons are based on over 30 years of dog training experience and 10 years of active K9SAR plus more. Look up the books online, they are available everywhere and free lessons are posted at the Family Disaster Dogs site. 

Available to train in person and speak at public events.

Books include:

UK Visitors

Welcome UK visitors to Family Disaster Dogs online! Although I'm an American author and dog professional the worldwide web has given me the opportunity to connect with some wonderful folks who have contributed pictures for my books. The "Start Mantrailing" book features RRI K9 North Scotland Search and Rescue Dog "Amber" on the cover and her teammates in the book, plus American dogs training that I know. A portion of the sales of the Start Mantrailing book or copies are donated to RRI North Scotland. The children's picture book "My Puppy Can Find Me" has my daughter and bloodhound as illustrations by UK cartoonist Scotty King. You can find the books on Amazon UK or visit my book page above to order from me.
