I have to do an internship as part of my capstone for my major, and I contacted Wasatch Backcountry Rescue to see if I could get on with them, and they said yes! WBR is a non-profit that trains dogs for search and rescue, primarily for avalanche rescue.
I will be assisting on rescues and helping with general administrative tasks. I am hoping that this will help me make some contacts in the SAR world. I would love to train a SAR dog.
