WBR Rescue Dogs are selected from dog teams at the local ski resorts. Members must test with their dogs every two years. This allows them to respond outside the ski area boundaries into the back country for their county sheriff’s office.
WBR dog teams are tested in obedience each season and a search test every other season. Dog teams are tested at a different Ski Resort from their own and evaluated by WBR evaluators, who grade the handler and dog on many different disciplines.
