Basic Missing Animal Response (MAR) Training
While Missing Pet Partnership offers advanced lost pet recovery training (including MAR search dog training), our basic “MAR” (Missing Animal Response) training course has been outsourced and is currently offered by MPP Founder Kat Albrecht. There are training options for both shelter workers or volunteer pet rescuers (8-week MAR course) and for professional pet detectives who plan to train a dog to find lost pets (10-week MAR course). For information on Kat’s training classes, visit Kat’s training page.
