Specializing in Missing and Lost Dogs
At the age of seven, when other little girls were playing with Barbie's
and baby dolls, Karin Chockley was in her backyard pretending she and her trusty cross breed, Ace were performing in obedience
trials at Madison Square Garden. By third grade, she had memorized all the breeds in the American Kennel Club registry and
Ace could adeptly perform all the required tasks to earn a CDX title but alas he was a mutt and she was just eight years old.
Karin began her training in private investigations in 1996. In 1997 she had the opportunity
to train and work with Search and Rescue K9 units in California Rescue Dog Association (CARDA). "The partnership with
a dog and excitement of helping others was a dream come true for me, she explains. I was hooked from the first day and found
myself out looking for a dog to train for search and rescue work the next weekend." Over the next five years, Karin trained
and handled two search dogs both trained to trail human scent over long distances and time.
In 2002, after returning to Oklahoma and purchasing a ranch she experienced a loss that would forever
change her life; a beloved canine friend, Jack, went missing. The overwhelming grief was made worst by the fact that she could
find no system in place to find him, no techniques, equipment or avenues to strategically pursue a missing pet.

In 2004, Karin made a decision to find missing pets full time forgoing any
other type of investigations. Through continuous self study as well as seminars and research, she has honed her skills in
behavior and missing pet scenario profiling.
When in her home state
of Nebraska, a large percentage of her work is done over the phone Profiling and designing recovery strategies for pet
owners. The rest of her time is spent on the road with her crew of canines traveling the country helping pet owners find their
lost and missing four pawed family members.
