tough but they take it very seriously. They spend their life protecting the U.S soldiers by
finding bombs and sniffing out chemicals. They’ll do anything to protect their soldiers, and

simple commands like sit or stay at a very young age. They have to go to school just like

We have been studying search and rescue dogs and how they find people. We
learned about breeds, training and jobs that they do.
Search and rescue training is hard. Search and rescue dogs play hide-and-seek
with items to sniff out. They have lots of items to find before they can start finding people.
They bark at their owners when the owners are pretending to steal something.
These are breeds that search and rescue dogs are: Golden Retrievers and
Weimaraners rescue people from avalanches. German Shepherds lay at yard sales (this
is when skiers lose their equipment) so that people don’t steal their skis. These breeds are
good because they are good smellers and diggers.
These are the jobs that search and rescue dogs do. They rescue people from
avalanches. They sniff the people out and then dig a hole so the people can breathe.
They also stand at yard sales so people don’t steal stuff.

help people by 18 months. During training, they learn simple commands like sit, stay, and
release. They swim across pools in case someone falls in and they try to help needy kids or
After they pass training, they find a job helping people with disabilities. They might
guard people or things, or help the blind. Guide dogs help blind people open doors, turn on
lights, or pick up things they have dropped. They also help blind people get places.
