    These are not your average dogs next door. They are part of an elite team. A team of highly trained and highly tested dogs. Dogs using their finely honed skills to search for lost people. There are currently only 13 validated search dogs in the BC Search Dog Association, two of those are in Kamloops. It takes a lot of work to pass the strict RCMP validation process and these dogs willingly put that work in. And their handlers are right beside them, investing time, energy and money in to a dog they hope will pass the test. We’ll follow dogs in all stages of the validation process to get a firsthand look at what it takes and to find out why these volunteers put it all on the line with the hopes of being able to call their dog a Search K9.


    The Team

    We are a Kamloops-based team with a passion for search and rescue. We will be looking for some more local creatives to help us round out our project.
