SAR title gives 20xp and certificate.
TKC- SAR Certificate by Soyala-Silveryst
Jobs your dog can get specialized in after getting SAR certified:
Airscenting- "Airscenting dogs primarily use airborne human scent to home in on subjects, whereas trailing dogs rely on scent of the specific subject. Airscenting dogs typically work off-lead, are non-scent-discriminating (e.g., locate scent from any human as opposed to a specific person), and cover large areas of terrain. These dogs are trained to follow diffused or wind-borne scent back to its source, then to indicate their find (for example, by sitting with the lost party and barking until the handler arrives, or by returning to the handler and indicating contact with the subject, and then lead the handler back to the subject)"
Tracking- "Tracking dogs will typically work on lead and will mostly have their nose to the track following ground disturbance. A good tracking dog will be able to work through a variety of terrain as well as successfully maneuver turns and "double backs" that a subject might take."
Trailing-
A trailing dog is scent specific, can also have his/her head up using some of the air scent techniques to find the subject. Trailing dogs will work on and off lead, and trailing dogs will venture off the actual path that a subject took should a scent pool be discovered. This is not to be considered an error by the dog, as they are following a specific scent and working through all other human scents to get to the source.


Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow Search and Rescue Novice is the first title earned after a single seminar. Novice canines must be equipped with a simple leather harness and must be on a long lead. In the first seminar, it will be held in an open field and the scent trail will be taking your dog and handler into the woods. Under a downed tree will be the person your dog is sniffing out.
The seminar can be held from dawn to dusk. The scent will be a warm scent, meaning it is no older than 15 minutes old. The weather has to be mild, snow and rain can cause the scent to fade faster and confuse your dog. He/She will learn in time to scent in the elements.



Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow Search and Rescue Advanced is the next step into becoming certified.This must be drawn at night and the dog must be tracking a warm trail that is at least 25 minutes old... with this night time test, your dog will track a scent from an open field, into the woods and lead up into the mountains. The "missing person" will be hiding out in a man made shelter.
For the night test, your dog must be equipped with a high visibility harness and must be on extended lead.

Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow Search and Rescue Superior will put your dog to the test, he/she will be tracking a cold scent that is about a day and a half old but also fading fast in the rain.  For the image, the high visibility vests are required.


Bullet; Yellow Bullet; Yellow Search and Rescue Certified is the final test, this will be testing your dog by having him/her track a 13 day old trail, any weather but sunny is allowed at any time of the day. The human must be well hidden and may leave a trail of clues, but the scent on those clues have to be faded (meaning, old). Just to make things interesting, you must also add the object of which the original scent is on (clothing and other personal items). After this is completed, your dog is officially certified to be Search and Rescue.


At the end and given the proof of all tests being done with the appropriate amount of images, your will receive a certificate from the group. All together there should be 4 images.

- Your dog must be a year old or older to qualify.
- There should be a total of 4 complete images. WIP's, manipulations and pre made lines art unacceptable. If those are used, you will be denied the title you are trying to earn and will have to try it again.
- semi to full background required
- Handlers are not required
- Harnesses and leashes when needed according to any of the above, are required.
- Each image gives 10 points (Event)

(her ref says 8mo because I need to update it, she's actually 2yrs now)

I never got a reply to my questions, so I went ahead & did all four trials to be safe... I hope it's alright to include a half body, since I've seen you approve headshots before ^^;

Questions! (and sorry for bothering you in advance)

:bulletblack: At the top, it's "Draw 3 drawings with full background. Pick 3 trials." However,  in the rules, it says "There should be a total of 4 complete images." Do we need three or four trials drawn to be qualified for the SAR title?

:bulletblack: Also, are we allowed one trial that's drawn as a head shot like TKC titles are typically done, or do all the trials need to be full body?

They seem like stupid questions, but i've seen people approved with as little as two fullbodies & a headshot, and as much as all four fullbody trials, so I'm not all too sure about what needs to be drawn... Thank you for your help! ^^;
