Urban Search and Rescue
Ground Search and Rescue
"Fide canem" is Latin for "trust the dog".
It is also a common motto and mantra for many search and rescue dog handlers. And one of the hardest lessons to learn.
fidecanem.ca celebrates and explores the training, techniques, and tactics of search dogs and their handlers. It is focused on urban search and rescue (USAR) and ground search and rescue (GSAR) profiles, including cadaver or human remains detection. Other topics, such as dog training fundamentals, book reviews, and the occasional touch of humour, may also be of interest to other working dog handlers and pet dog trainers and owners.
