to LOUTH SEARCH DOGS
Search Dogs evolved from an idea thought of at a local dog training
club way back in 1996.
Police Dog Handler had come along to assess dogs for
the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog award scheme. He had an idea to develop
a passive search dog team for Lincolnshire to help the Police search
for missing persons, as police dogs are very good at locating people
but not so friendly when they find them!. From his initial visit it
was clear there was a lot of interest, so it was decided to pursue
the idea further.
have come and gone for various reasons but the group we are today
is a core of dedicated individuals who voluntarily give up their free
time, day or night, 365 days a year, in any climate, to search for
have a variety of breeds and crosses working in our team. The breed
is not as relevant as the dog's ability, although we do feel the working
breeds are generally more motivated and have more stamina.
