Colorado K-9s participate in a special search and rescue training day

Search and rescue teams in Colorado took their K-9s on a special day of training on Saturday.

The teams from three counties – El Paso, Teller and Fremont – came together to participate in the special training in El Paso.

“Yesterday our K-9s and several other K-9s from Teller County Search and Rescue and Fremont Search and Rescue, Inc. had a very special day of training at some of our handlers’ impressive mountain property,” El Paso County Search and Rescue wrote in Sunday afternoon a Facebook post.

The dogs went through a series of different exercises, including air scent, towing, and skills needed to track down human remains.

In addition to practicing these essential skills, the K-9s were also able to experience a Tyrolean traverse and practice rappelling.
