Here's a break down of what is covered and the cost of the course
(which supports the nonprofit's efforts to develop community-based
lost pet services):

MAR Technician Course

This course is designed for those who plan to train a dog to find
lost pets as a fee-based service. This is a certification course that
teaches you how to conduct lost pet investigations that includes
training in how to use search dogs to find lost pets, forensics,
deductive reasoning, and search probability theory. This training
enables attendees to pull in revenue for their lost pet services.
During the MAR Technician Course you will learn:
• How to use high-tech equipment and trained search dogs to
locate lost pets.
• A step-by-step process of how to train a dog to locate lost
pets.
• How to use deductive reasoning to process clues, search
probability theory to know where to search, and behavioral profiling
to predict the distance a lost pet will travel.
• How to collect and analyze physical evidence to solve lost
pet investigations.
• How you can prepare to offer MAR services in your community
as a side business, through an existing business, or as a community
service through a nonprofit organization.
• Pet grief counseling principles.
• How pets behave when lost, how far they travel, and the most
probable locations where they can be found.
• How behavior (human and animal) influences the chances that a
lost dog or lost cat will be reunited with its owner/guardian.
• How to use "trap-and-reunite" techniques to recover displaced
cats.
• How to launch innovative "Loose Dog Recovery" teams
using "attract-and-capture" techniques to capture loose/panicked dogs
during disasters and on the 5th of July.

This course typically runs all day Friday through the end of
Wednesday*. The fee in 2008 for the MAR Technician certification
course is $625.00.

Lost Pet First Responder Course

This course is designed for those who plan to volunteer to find lost
pets. Primarily for rescue group volunteers, TNR, shelter workers,
and animal lovers who want to help search for lost pets or want to
know more about lost pet behaviors. This is a non certification
course that runs for 3 (evening) hours on Friday evening, all day
Saturday, and all day Sunday. During The Lost Pet First Responder
Course you will learn:
• How pets behave when lost, how far they travel, and the most
probable locations where they can be found.
• How behavior (human and animal) influences the chances that a
lost dog or lost cat will be reunited with its owner/guardian.
• How to use "trap-and-reunite" techniques to recover displaced
cats.
• How to launch innovative "Loose Dog Recovery" teams
using "attract-and-capture" techniques to capture loose/panicked dogs
during disasters and on the 5th of July.

The fee in 2008 for the 2 1/2 day Lost Pet First Responder training
is $150.00. *The length and fees for the May 2008 Hickory Corners,
Michigan seminars are different as it is a camp setting with meals
and lodging included.
