What's New With K-9 SARK!


Lots of new stuff going on. We have a bunch of new dogs to introduce in the coming months, including Don & Della's K9 Honey and Tiffany's K9 Duke. The K9SARK trailer is looking good, see new pics here. We had a great turnout for WoofStock in October 2016 as well.

During the middle of March 2017, K9SARK Members conducted several searches assisting Butler Co. as well as a body recovery in Independence Ks. Don & Brenda with K9 Lincoln and Derrick & Laurie and K9 Rookie traveled to Galva Ks to put on an informative program on search and rescue for the Galva Fire Dept.

Thanks to Firehouse Subs we were awarded a grant for a 4 man UTV and trailer, a 16 foot rescue boat with life vests for the dogs and handlers including trailer! We have already put the new equipment to work. Check out our FaceBook page for lots of Pics!

Please check out Brenda's great powerpoint on how our air scenting SAR dogs work. It's very informative and a well done explanation on how the dogs make a find, starring K9 Lincoln !

Laurie K9SARK Team members test for their NASAR K-9 SARTECH III and II certifications during the winter of 2008. This is a national certification with only a handfull of search dogs in the state obtaining the title. The certification requires a written test of general SAR skills along with skills for the K-9 handler. A pack check follows the written test. A searcher must have and carry all the gear listed by NASAR in a 24-hour ready pack. After the pack check the K-9 handler and their dog must find a hidden victim in a timed test over a 60 Acre area for the SARTECH III and over a wider area for the SARTECH II.
