Wildlife Diaries: Remarkable Canines- North Paw K9 Search and Recovery

  • Alaska Zoo 4731 O'Malley Road Anchorage, AK, 99507 United States (map)

Many people go missing and one of the tools that are used in locating them are canines. Dogs are remarkable in things that they have been taught to find, helping solve crimes and locating missing and lost persons.  North Paw K9 Search and Recovery, will discuss how the dogs are trained and how they work together with the dogs to locate the missing.
