Abstract: A carefully selected dog of considered breed is put through an orderly, carefully documented sequence of search training, with extensive socialization and obedience, starting in puppyhood. The goal is to have a certified dog, still the best all-around means of avalanche search, on standby above any potential in-area accident.
