AMRG provides the premier canine search and rescue program in Western Pennsylvania. We provide specialty training for dog teams in air-scent, trailing/tracking, and cadaver/human remains detection. Our search dogs and handlers are a integral part of the overall mountain rescue team. We train to search the most difficult search areas and train our team members in technical rescue techniques to access challenging terrain and to assist in the rescue and evacuation of subjects. Being a member of the AMRG canine SAR team means being a well rounded search and rescue technician capable of not only working a search dog, but also contributing in all aspects of the search and rescue effort.
