S3E18: Geocaching Search and Rescue Training

If you listen to this podcast then you know what geocaching is and most of us have probably heard of search and rescue teams before either from the news or TV or movies. But how do the two go together and how do you train dogs to do it? In this episode, I’m joined by returning guest Kitten Davis, to talk about her background in search in rescue and how she uses it, not only for navigation training, but to train dogs for evidence recovery.
