[edit] Search dogs

A NASAR analysis of the effectiveness of search dog teams. There are no good statistics for SAR so wildlife detection dogs are used to approximate.

"wildlife detection dogs operating in the field cover approximately 5 to 25 ha/hr with reported detection rates of 33% to 95% based on various measuring systems. Lastly, wildlife detection dogs were found to be 5 to 15 times more effective than trained humans in the field."
