SAR dogs can offer closure by searching for human remains, both on land and in water. VSRDA offers dogs trained for such scenarios.
Human Remains Detection
While finding missing subjects in wilderness and rural settings is our primary mission, many of our canine teams are trained for other specialties. Several of our teams are trained in human remains detection and have worked successfully to help resolve criminal investigations.
We also have dogs specially trained for water recovery. VSRDA is fortunate to have our own boat, specially equipped for this type of work.
