REMUS Ad-Gur-offered for placement by

Remus is a 2.5-year-old unaltered male European Import that is currently available for purchase in the US. He is a very versatile dog with exceptional temperament and a stable, clear working drive that makes him an ideal candidate as a detection canine. A combination of genetics and training both within the US and abroad (we will explain tug work, etc from you with a link to your site and searches, agility, ladders, etc from me) ensures Remus has a solid foundation to perform any job that he is selected for.

FEMA Certifications:

Canine & Handler Certification

Highly trained canines and canine handlers support Urban Search-and-Rescue Task Forces.  All of FEMA’s US&R Task Forces have canine/handler teams, all of which are prepared in urban search and rescue strategies and tactics.

Each canine/handler team must pass a rigorous national certification in urban search and rescue.  Canine/handler teams must be re-certified every three years to participate in search and rescue operations.  The canine must be at least 18 months old to attempt the test.  Most canines test after they are two years old—well-trained and physically and emotionally mature enough to do this job.

For the handler, certification includes tests regarding search strategies and tactics, mapping, search and victim markings, briefing and debriefing skills, in addition to canine handling skills.

For the disaster search canine, certification includes proper command control, agility skills, a focused bark alert to indicate a live find, and a willingness to persist in searching for live victims in spite of possible extreme temperatures and animal, food and noise distractions.  The canine must also be confident enough to search independently and must be able to negotiate slippery surfaces, balance wobbly objects underneath his feet and go through dark tunnels.

The team tests on two large rubble piles for an unknown number of victims, implementing all of their knowledge, skills and abilities acquired from years of training.  Teams that pass are some of the most highly trained canine resources in the country.

We will also explain that very few dogs even make it through testing to enter the FEMA program.
