AKC Honors Search and Rescue Dogs
The AKC is pleased to honor the skills of SAR dogs and the dedication of their owners. There are titles for FEMA certified Urban SAR dogs and Wilderness SAR dogs. Owners may apply to have titles recorded on the dog's record and receive an AKC Title Certificate honoring their dog's accomplishments. The title will appear on the dog's pedigree.
