COSAR's K9 Duo

Congratulations to Cosar’s K9 duo, Chase and Barrett for their recent successful validations with the RCMP Police Dog Services last week at the BC Search Dog Association’s fall course in Merritt!

Chase successfully renewed his wilderness search credentials for the 4th time and Barrett completed his tracking validation for the first time as one of only six SAR K9’s in the province with both wilderness and tracking credentials under the RCMP National Civilian SAR K9 standard.

Many (or even thousands) of hours of training goes into ensuring these furry team members keep their skills sharp and ready to assist when needed by not only COSAR but also any of the 78 SAR teams in the province.

There are a total of 28 certified SAR K9’s under the RCMP program and we are fortunate to have two on the COSAR team.
