Disaster search dogs locate survivors in the rubble of disasters .
Search and rescue dogs are critical in the days following a disaster as they sniff out survivors under piles of rubble and inform rescue workers. As we watch too much TV coverage of disasters, it’s important to note that there aren’t enough canine disaster search teams currently trained in the U.S. should disaster strike. On this week’s episode of the “Good Dog” podcast, Debra Tosch, Executive Director of the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation, explains how these dogs work, how they’re trained, and how you can help to insure that enough teams are ready to go in the event of a major earthquake, hurricane, tornado or landslide.
