Learn from two top Pet Detectives and K9 Handlers about lost dog and cat behavior, first studied with the perspective of search-and-rescue by MAR Network Director Kat Albrecht. “Due to a background in search-and-rescue (searching for lost people), Kat understood the critical connection between behavior and the distances that people travel when lost. It made sense to Kat that the behavior of cats (and dogs) would also influence the distances that they travel.” This presentation will include information about lost pet behavior, real-life case examples, information about using Search Dogs to find missing pets and more!
