*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Courage and Dedication Combined: The Search Dog Foundation and the Bay Area Recovery Canines. Episode: 1758, Air Date: 8 July 2011. Search-and-rescue dogs serve on the frontlines locating people missing after natural disasters, lost children, injured hikers and others, being ready at a moment’s notice to bravely endure the elements and save lives. Supreme Master Ching Hai, world renowned humanitarian, artist and spiritual teacher, speaks of her admiration and concern for these devoted canines. And I saw many dogs, you know, they used for rescue mission. Oh, they just walk in like nothing, but I feel so bad about them. The dogs walk in the sharp, broken glasses or anything like that, even chemical leaking or anything, or germs or danger. And these are precious dogs. They have been trained for years. And they even lay down their life for anyone at command. You have to protect that dog. To show Her loving support for search dogs and their human partners, Supreme Master Ching Hai has generously contributed over US$80,000 to search-and-rescue teams in 18 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Panama, the Philippines, Slovenia, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. Today’s program features two of these courageous groups: the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (Search Dog Foundation) in Ojai, California, USA and the Bay Area Recovery Canines (BARC) in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. Founded in 1996, the Search Dog Foundation (SDF) is a non-profit organization which professionally trains search and rescue canines, and then places them at fire departments across the United States at no cost. One of the most unique aspects of this organization is where the dogs come from. Executive director Debra Tosch now gives us insight. The mission of the Search Dog Foundation is to strengthen the emergency response in America. And we do that by rescuing dogs from shelters and breed rescue groups, getting them trained by a professional trainer and then pairing them up with firefighter partners. And then we actually train the firefighters to be able to do disaster search. The solid training provided by the Search Dog Foundation make the firefighter and canine teams ready for deployment anywhere in the US and even abroad. We have had teams respond to 9/11, the World Trade Center, we’ve had teams respond to Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita, and more recent hurricanes. And I would say the biggest challenge was when we had teams respond to Haiti, to the earthquake over there. While in Haiti, the valiant search and rescue dogs and their human partners located and saved the lives of nine people who were trapped beneath massive mounds of debris. The first find was locating three girls buried in a four story building. They were literally four stories down. And the dog indicated that there was somebody in there. And they do that by barking. They get the scent of people that they can’t see, and then they bark until the partner gets there. And so, sure enough as soon as the dog alerted (everyone), they started, working around the building and calling out and they heard somebody answer. And it took them six hours, but they pulled the three girls out. In Haiti there was another woman. And she happened to be taking a nap when the earthquake happened. And she was in the bed face down. And when it collapsed, the ceiling was gently (lying) on top of her. And so she was pinned for three days, when they got to that area to search. And they were able to locate her. And they had to crawl in spaces that were only 18 inches. She had no injures other than being dehydrated, but she couldn’t get out. And had they not been able to locate her, she would have perished there. When the Search Dog Foundation looks for a new dog candidate to prepare for search and rescue work, there are several key qualities he or she must possess. The canine must be emotionally stable, sociable, unaffected by other dogs and noises, but also playful. We’re looking for dogs that have very high energy. Dogs that are obsessed with toys, any type of toys. And then they have to be in good physical shape too. But they’re running up and down these rubble piles, so we have to make sure that they’re very healthy. We x-ray their hips and their elbows to make sure, because we don’t want to cause pain in the dog later on. So we have to make sure that they’re able to do this. Supreme Master Ching Hai contributed US $1,000 to the Search Dog Foundation to help them buy additional safety equipment for the noble and gallant canine rescuers. Our local Association members presented the check to Debra Tosch on Supreme Master Ching Hai’s behalf. Oh, well thank you so much because, I’ve been out there and I can tell you first-hand it truly does make a difference. So thank you so much for helping us meet our mission. The Foundation was also given a copy of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s #1 international bestseller “The Dogs In My Life.” The group later sent a warm letter to Supreme Master Ching Hai. The following is a brief excerpt: We are humbled by your confidence in our work of rescuing dogs, and saving lives … We would like to extend a wholehearted WELCOME to you as a new member of the SDF family. Thank you for being Part of the Search! Debra Tosch, Executive Director Abby, Executive Search Dog The Bay Area Recovery Canines (BARC) is a volunteer non-profit organization which provides free of charge canine search and rescue teams to assist law enforcement officials in finding missing and lost persons. We met BARC’s president, Heather Roche, a 20-year veteran of search and rescue work, and her partner, Red in Williamsburg, Virginia. We specialize in some (of) the harder cases. We get called in by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. So we actually travel throughout the US on missing person cases. This is Red. She’s actually 10 and half. And if you can hear her, she’s ready to go. She thought we were going to come out here and start training already. So she was all excited. She’s cross-trained. She’ll find live people as well as deceased because we do a lot of evidence searches. And, missing people, even cold cases, 20 years out. But she’s also a (Federal Emergency Management Agency) FEMA disaster dog. So she’ll search the rubble. She was my youngest (dog) at 9/11 (World Trade Center) and worked the (9/11) Pentagon. And then she was my primary (dog) at (Hurricane) Katrina, at Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. And she’s done things like tornados, and other small collapses as well. So dedicated is Red to her work, that she will sacrifice her own safety to protect or save the lives of others. She recently sustained a serious injury in a rescue mission. A little over a month ago, she was working a three-story house that had caught on fire and unfortunately the homeowner was sleeping and was still inside the rubble. And she was trying to get her way to where he was located. And there wasn’t much left of the building. And where she was, started to collapse. And so she had to ride out the slide. In that, she cut herself on either a nail or sharp metal, unfortunately, all the way to her bone and cut an artery. But we were lucky. We were there with the fire department and paramedics. And the paramedics took care of her, wrapped her up and actually the fire marshals rushed her off to a vet right away. And she’s healed. She’s totally fine. They did a great job sewing her up. And even after she got hurt, she still kept on searching because she just loves to do it. We also met another delightful team from BARC: Cathy Dodgen and her canine partner, Rusty. This is Rusty. Rusty is a Border Collie I got as a rescue out of an abuse and neglect case from North Carolina (USA). So I got him at about six months old, he’s seven now. For six years he’s worked finding live people, and now I’m training him to look for human remains as well. Throughout the years, Ms. Dodgen has trained several dogs. All of my search dogs actually came out of rescue. So I take the dogs; I rehabilitate them physically, mentally, emotionally; and then, a lot of dogs I pass on to good homes. And then, some dogs they're really energetic, and so they turn out to be a really good candidate to do search with. On Supreme Master Ching Hai’s behalf, our local Association members presented BARC with her donation of US$1,000 for the purchase of safety equipment for the group’s canine members. Thank you so much for this. It helps us be able to continue and not only help the missing persons (alright, Red’s ready to go), but it helps the family. Ms. Roche was also given a copy of “The Dogs in My Life.” Thank you, I can’t wait to read it. And (I) imagine she (is) like us. Our dogs are our partners, and they're our lives. The Bay Area Recovery Canines later sent a thoughtful letter to Supreme Master Ching Hai. The following is a brief excerpt: Your generous gift will allow us to insure that each BARC dog will be outfitted with an ice bed for hot weather searches, and a warming bed for the cold ones. In addition, each dog will be fitted with a cooling vest that will keep them more comfortable while working in heat and humidity, and insure that they will not be in danger of heatstroke. Once again, we send our heartfelt thanks for your generosity. With Best Regards, Cathy Dodgen, Secretary Bay Area Recovery Canines Many thanks to all the canine and human members of the Search Dog Foundation and Bay Area Recovery Canines for your devotion to saving and protecting the lives of others. You are truly an inspiration and a light to us all.

*******SupremeMasterTV**** – Searching for Life: The Dogs of NZ’s Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue & USA’s Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S.. Episode: 1778, Air Date: 28 July 2011. Search-and-rescue dogs serve on the frontlines locating people missing after natural disasters, lost children, injured hikers and others, being ready at a moment’s notice to bravely endure the elements and save lives. Supreme Master Ching Hai, world renowned humanitarian, artist and spiritual teacher, speaks of her admiration and concern for these devoted canines. And I saw many dogs, you know, they used for rescue mission. Oh, they just walk in like nothing, but I feel so bad about them. The dogs walk in the sharp, broken glasses or anything like that, even chemical leaking or anything, or germs or danger. And these are precious dogs. They have been trained for years. And they even lay down their life for anyone at command. You have to protect that dog. To show her loving support for search dogs and their human partners, Supreme Master Ching Hai has generously contributed over US$80,000 to search-and-rescue teams in 18 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, China, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Panama, the Philippines, Slovenia, the Netherlands, the UK and the USA. Today’s program features two of these courageous teams, the Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue from New Zealand, and Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S., from the United States. Located in Queenstown, South Island, the Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue is an active team specialized in high country and mountain search and rescue. Wakatipu Search and Rescue is actually a volunteer group, which has been established back in 1980s. It’s a working group of about 40 people, who are sent in case somebody is lost in the mountains, around the lake or in the city, or wherever else. The search and rescue dogs at the Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue are often deployed for searches where time is of the essence and the terrain is difficult. Such is the case following an avalanche. There is a big use in avalanche and snow clearing. My dog is operational in avalanche and snow. It means that if an avalanche happens, he can go and find the buried person. In an avalanche, do you helicopter up to the location? Because the time is very crucial, normally it’s a helicopter, of course. At least to bring you to the base and then from the base you decide how to go there. Normally the first 15 minutes is the most important. Because then the possibility that you find a live person actually drops every minute. So that’s why lots of avalanche jobs are based on the ski fields, which means that they are always very handy. And if anything happens around the area, they can be very quickly transported to the place where the avalanche happened. But, yes, actually in an avalanche the dogs are a great asset for everybody, because there’s no other possibility to cover a big area of snow, because everything else would be really slow. How are the dogs cared for during a mission? During the mission, it depends on the terrain, on the situation, on the weather. Because, for example, a dog like Jacques needs more breaks more often, because he can overheat and can be quite tired after a long search. He has to have lots of water. You will always watch the terrain, if he is not in a dangerous situation. The dogs should have a break every 40 minutes; for another 10, 15 minutes, especially if it is hot weather, if it is demanding terrain, and then you can continue again. Some dogs are very dedicated to work for you. It means that they don’t really watch how they feel and they can put themselves in troubles. They really go to every terrain, every situation. So you have to decide and manage this. The search and rescue dogs are very motivated and willing to work. What is their reward for conducting a successful search? They don’t associate the search operation with any reward. The reward itself comes through the particular search. When he succeeds, he's given a little toy, which is his favorite toy. But most of all it’s your excitement again, as the partner, and that’s what the dog wants to see. Because you are his “alpha” being, you are his leader and he wants you to be satisfied. So it’s not the toy itself. It’s actually the whole group of aspects and behavior of yourself which comes as the reward for the dog. In recognition of the valuable contributions of the humble, dedicated dogs of the Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue, Supreme Master Ching Hai donated US$1000 to the organization to purchase protective equipment for them. It’s actually a kind of confirmation of the great sponsorship we were given by Supreme Master. We will use this great money for the protection of the dogs, which will possibly come in terms of little tents. Because when we do our exercise or even the live search, which is more important, and something happens with the weather, we normally can protect ourselves, but we can’t protect the dogs. Now we travel to central USA to visit Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S., a volunteer organization which provides teams to search for persons who are lost, trapped, or incapacitated. Let’s meet some of the members and their delightful canine partners. Hi, I am Cindy Majane with Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S. We have about 15 regular training volunteers with our organization. I am Christie and this is my dog Aleko. She is a three years old Belgian Malinois. I am Lori Weckesser and this is my dog Ella. She is a two and a half years old German Shepherd. I am George Stephens. This is my dog Max; he’s a two years old Lab. Hi, Jane Servais. This is my seven-year-old Australian Shepherd, Embers. Hi. I am Allen and this is Simi. Hi, I am Bill Kenealy. I have a two and a half year old German Shepherd who is currently on a time out. I am Kate Gold and this is my dog Pi. She is one year old Border Collie. I’m Laura, and this is Bluestone. He’s a two years old West Virginia hound dog. Because these dogs must frequently work in a wide range of weather conditions, extra care must be taken to protect them. We need to watch out on a cold day like this that you don’t overwork the dog, that you always check your dog’s paws when they come back in to make sure they are not cut or they don’t have snow or ice in between their paw pads. And so we are extra careful both in the snow and during the summer with the heat, always to make sure that they are okay. Dogs have a sense of smell thousands of times better than humans, and use this highly developed ability to locate a missing person. Let’s watch how Cindy and Slugger conduct such a search. This is Cindy and her dog Slugger. Slugger is a nine-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer. Slugger has been doing and training for search work since he was a puppy. You see how the dog’s head has gone up. The body language has changed. The back is straight. The dog had picked up the scent, worked it to the source, and now what the dog has to do is come back and tell the partner that he’s made a find. As you can tell, finding people is the greatest thing in the world. They love this. So it’s not complete without the dog telling. You can hear the dog barking. The dog has to lead the person back in. And he doesn’t get rewarded until the partner and the dog and the person missing are all together. Allen shows how his dedicated dog companion Simi works very diligently until she picks up the scent. So he just gave her the command to go find. So she goes out. And then she goes into the woods. She’s searching. You can see as she zigzags back and forth a little bit, she’s in scent. And then we can hear her barking because she’s found the person. She will bark until Al gets there. Training a SAR canine takes thousands of hours. Sometimes it begins when she is only a puppy. Such is the case for Kailey. Kailey is an eight-month- old puppy and she’s just learning all about search- and-rescue work. And the primary thing that she needs for this is to like people. And she likes people. So we can get started. With the new dogs that are just training they get rewarded for going in. They don’t have the behavior training yet to go back and forth, although they may, just because they’re excited. Kailey’s getting rewarded for going to Laura and finding her. Today’s new technology is helping the dogs and their partners conduct their searches more efficiently. Max is wearing an Astro collar. I’ve actually integrated it on his harness, this orange piece here. That’s a radio transmitter that broadcasts his location based on GPS. I have a companion device which I carry, and it will tell me where he is in relation to me. In addition it maintains a record, so you can see a track on the screen both of where I’ve walked and where Max walks. So if we’re out trying to cover a large area, I’ll be able to see not only the part of that area that I walked, but also the part that Max walked and get a reasonably good idea of how well we’ve covered the area and searched it. Although they train arduously for hours, the searchers and their canine companions enjoy their training sessions together. I learn something every time I go out with my dog. I learn to trust my dog. Sometimes you’re out searching, maybe just training and your dog takes off and you think, “Oh the person couldn’t be there,” but the person is there. You trust your dog, because they have qualities of smell that we don’t have and they can find people that we would not know were there. It’s very inspiring to work with them. To recognize the outstanding contributions of the dogs in this noble organization, Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly contributed US$1000 toward the purchase of protective equipment for their hard working dogs. Members of Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S. expressed their appreciation of this recognition. Thank you very much for your donation. Thank you, thank you. Thank you. We appreciate it very much. We’ll use it to benefit our dogs who are our true partners. And we very much appreciate you coming out and visiting with us today. Supreme Master Ching Hai’s #1 international bestselling book, “The Dogs in My Life,” was also presented as a gift. Thank you very much, and it’ll be very interesting to read. Thank you. Our heartfelt appreciation, dedicated canines and volunteers from the Wakatipu LandSAR Search and Rescue and Mid Atlantic D.O.G.S., who selflessly devote time and energy to serve others in urgent situations. We wish you every success in your noble work and many years of happiness together, both on and off the job, with God’s manifold blessings.
