What are the characteristics of a good Search
and Rescue dog?

  • NOT BEING AFRAID OF ANYTHING
  • HAVE GOOD NERVES
  • HAVE A LOT OF TEMPERAMENT
  • FRIENDLY WITH PEOPLE
  • HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF SMELL
  • NEVER GIVE UP
  • NOT AGGRESSIVE TOWARDS OTHER DOGS OR CAN CONTROL THE AGGRESSION
  • CAN WORK INDEPENDENTLY
  • LIKE TO GO THROUGH DARK TUNNELS AND HOLES
  • CAN CLIMB AND JUMP

The Kerry fits most of these requirements. The biggest problem might be that they get bored too easy. Many Kerries have been successful in Search and
Rescue.
