AKC's Pick of the Litter Podcast

(Tuesday, September 11, 2012)

AKC's Pick of the Litter podcast - where we bring you canine culture, dog people, and news you can use. From canine heroes to celebrated artists, listen in on the wide world of dogs. When the tragedy of September 11, 2001 is commemorated each year, we pay tribute to both victims and heroes. Among these are the gallant search-and-rescue (SAR) teams of brave canines and dedicated handlers that worked so tirelessly at Ground Zero. As a result of their efforts, the public has become much more aware of this vital service, performed by scores of professional and volunteer teams all over the country. This edition of PICK OF THE LITTER focuses on search-and-rescue work, both Urban and Wilderness, a popular SAR breed - the English Springer Spaniel, as well as a new training and research center dedicated specifically for detection dogs in America.

Listen to the podcast.
