Ground Unit

Every member of Search Dogs Northwest have met or exceeded the Washington state WAC requirements before they are able to be deployed. Our ground team members respond to the majority of the call-outs we receive which may vary from evidence searches to multi-day wilderness missions. Our ground team members also support the canine teams as flankers when needed.

Our ground team members are highly skilled in navigation (map, compass, gps), radio communication, clue awareness, hasty and grid search techniques, patient packaging, and medical response.
