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.

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.
