The Canadian Search and Disaster Dogs Association (CASDDA) will offer a K-9 Search and Rescue seminar and workshop in Abbotsford, on Friday Nov. 18th through Sunday Nov. 20th.
The session is to explore the possibility of starting a local K-9 Search and Rescue group serving the Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley communities and surrounding area.
The seminar will demonstrate and explain techniques used in searching for lost victims by experienced handlers and certified search dogs.
The workshop will provide the opportunity for local residents and their dogs to learn search techniques and determine their interest and aptitude toward forming a local K-9 SAR group.
The seminar will be given by CASDDA’ s Training Coordinator, Silvie Montier, a longtime K-9 SAR dog team leader and instructor.
CASDDA’s mandate is to provide communities, locally, nationally and internationally with trained SAR dogs and their handlers in an effort to locate survivors lost in the wilderness or trapped a disaster area, be it under snow or under rubble. CASDDA also provides trained dogs and handlers for the recovery of individuals deceased in the wilderness or drowned in rivers and lakes.
