CCCSAR dog handlers
come from various backgrounds and bring with them unique experiences, but all share one commonality - a love of dogs and a dedication to helping the missing.
Handlers attend workshops and trainings to develop skills in navigation, wilderness survival, crime scene preservation, canine first aid, and other competencies. To keep skills sharp, canine teams practice together twice a week
and hold quarterly Search And Rescue Exercises.
Serving as a CCCSAR volunteer is rewarding but is also costly. Achieving a certification costs an estimated $2,000, which does not include the normal costs of pet ownership. In addition to initial certification costs, handlers must also outfit a 24-hour-pack and pay for ongoing training and other required certifications, which often involve traveling out of state. These all-volunteer handlers cover their own expenses and accept no reimbursement from law enforcement.
