Equipment Needed

You do not need any special equipment to begin training your family dog to assist your family and friends in a disaster or emergency situation. 

Any dog, any age will help you look for lost family members or friends once you know how to ask the dog to help you. 

Dogs are called Man's Best Friend because they are always willing to be there for us, ready to lend a paw whenever needed. With a little bit of education this natural instinct to please will come in handy during an emergency situation. 

Equipment makes training easier but during an actual emergency, the equipment can be lost or not available due to location, rubble or flood waters. In that case, all you are left with is your dog. 

Our dogs are the most important piece of disaster preparedness equipment we can invest in and throughout human existence the family dog has aided in human survival without any equipment but love.

All you need is;

        1.  The family Dog (any age will do)

         2. One sock from each family member
         3.  Lots of encouragement, praise and love

         4. Dog treats for the less inclined dog

Extra Equipment which is useful as training progresses includes;

         1.  20 ft long leash in a width that fits your dog's size.

         2.  A Harness for your dog to do Tracking ( Tactical Harness )

         3.  Flat Collar with ID tag

         4.  A treat and equipment waist bag for you, a carpenter's nail bag works great!

         5.  A 24 to 72 hour Emergency Survival Pack  (click for list)

         6. Saddlebags for your dog to carry first aid and survival supplies. (Tactical bag)
