Gateway Search Dogs, Inc., a not for profit, 501(c)(3), Missouri corporation, was incorporated in 2002 due to a continuing need to provide certified canine teams and field personnel to help locate lost, missing or deceased persons.
Gateway Search Dog’s (GSD) membership includes individuals and canines that are certified in various disciplines by national organizations. These certifying organizations include but are not limited to, North American Police Work Dog Association, International Police Work Dog Association, National Search Dog Alliance and National Association for Search and Rescue. Our canine teams specialize in wilderness area search, water human remains detection, land human remains detection and tracking/trailing.
GSD will serve all city, county, and state agencies without prejudice and will work in cooperation with other SAR organizations.
We are an all volunteer organization and there are no charges for our service. We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. GSD operates independently of any political entity.
If you are interested in becoming a canine handler, but do not have a dog as yet, come to our training before you acquire a dog. Some breeds can be better than others for SAR work and we will be happy to help you make the right choice.
