Training Rescue Dogs

By Lee Austin

Goblin Valley State Park, UT – When police in Utah get a missing person's report, someone lost on a camping trip or back country hike, they often call the Salt Lake City-based group Rocky Mountain Rescue Dogs. The rescue dogs and their volunteer handlers are highly trained, participating in group exercises or "workouts" each month. Goblin Valley State Park was the scene of a recent workout. Lee Austin traveled there and has this report.
