I've never heard of huskies being used for search and rescue, 

probably due to their poor recall.

I know my lot would simply run off, get lost and need rescuing themselves :P

My friend did do SAR with her Siberian Husky many years ago- her dog was really great at it, also won many agility titles and obedience titles.  Sadly she hasn't had another candidate since her original

great to hear that :)

Looks like he found you!!! How's his recall when he's out looking?

he´s not finding me.. he is finding helper who is playing the role of the vicitm..

 

he have rule that we dont give any commands to a dog while he is looking for the victim.. we´re using body language to show what areas need to be search..

 

of course that counts.. :D the food needs to be rescued :D if you know what i mean :)

what a great thing to do, great that Balto gets to use his brain in this way, stimulates him & makes him work. Keep up the good work and keep posting the pics & videos of your progress ... well done :clap:

Well you are very lucky. Mine won't even come when I call in doors unless I have a treat in my hand.

Do not worry, you're in the majority :) Most of us always keep our huskies on lead because of their incredible prey drive and lack of recall.
