This video is making the rounds on social media, and is certainly an example of a K9 hero.  But for those of us with an interest in K9 SAR, this deputy does a great job of describing his dog’s body language.  The reporter probably doesn’t even click to what great information the deputy is passing along for those of us in the biz.

Video: WBNS TV, Ohio, story on police K9.

The deputy notes ear position and even breathing pattern, and correctly deduces that the dog is tracking because it ignores a firefighter. All those facts and more led him to believe his dog was on the right track.

A good handler knows his dog this well.
