Technical analysis of canine behavior during a disaster search

The behavior of a dog from the very beginning of a disaster search until the signaling of a victim indicates in a lineal way, some optimum levels of autonomy, motivation, concentration and environmental adaptation. The degree of inhibition these special dogs show while in the presence of these different adverse elements should be inappreciable. The dog should have an excellent and very developed odoriferous discrimination. Keep in mind the magnitude of odorous interferences that occur in a disaster scene.

The dog must know what type of behavior and signaling it must give, such as by continual and persistent barking while remaining at where he has found the victim. The most outstanding search and rescue dogs in these types of situations can find a victim in 1 minute.

These types of measures are fundamental when it comes to how effective a search and rescue mission will be and it has helped to solve some of the more conflictive and extensive situations canine rescue teams used to have.
