So after being repeatedly called and hung up upon by friend over her traumatic experience which led to her meeting a cadaver dog..posted about in another thread....

I decided to look up Cadaver Dogs

Very interesting...though its kind of creepy how a lot of the sites I looked at had admonitions not to store your 'scent sample for training':)eek:) in the same refrigerator as the food you eat...

So cadaver dogs are basically SAR just minus the R...Dog jobs are really interesting to me...but that's one avenue I definatly don't think I could handle..lol...

this was kind of interesting tho

it is sort of creepy but invaluable they are using them down here to look for the little Caylee Anthony they also have dogs who are trained to find fruit at the aiport since they don't want want citrus canker and there is a guy in town who had termite dogs and I guess they have even trained dogs to find DVDs and CDs since the bootleg market is so big

My god mother had SAR dogs and one that did both SAR and cadaver search.....and it was very freaky knowing that her "sent sample" was out in an extra fridge in the garage :p

I have a lot of respect for people who train and work with cadaver dogs. It must be very difficult when the dog alerts cos on one hand, you're proud of your dog for doing it's job, but on the other hand, it's a dead body they've found. Talk about mixed emotions.

I plan on doing SAR with the next puppy I get. the cadavers part is actually not that bad in some respects unless you find a rather putrid one..While I do get grossed out and wiggy...I have a thicker stomach than most and usually recover from shocks quickly...honestly its the idea of failure while someone is at home wringing their hands and sobbing for their loved one...that seems like the hardest concept for me to swallow..
