Montana Search and Rescue

Absaroka Search Dogs
Absaroka Search Dogs is the oldest search dog organization in the State of Montana. Our teams have assisted law enforcement agencies from throughout Montana and northern Wyoming since 1986 on searches for lost or missing individuals. Our teams are trained for trailing, air scenting, avalanche, drowning and human remains searches. ASD will only respond to search requests from the law enforcement agency having jurisdiction on the search. If you are not law enforcement, please contact the local police or sheriff’s department.

Clarkfork-Bitterroot Search and Rescue Dogs
Welcome to the site of the Clarkfork-Bitterroot Search Dogs. The CBSD is comprised of certified search dogs, dogs in training and dog handlers. This site is intended to provide general information on SAR (Search and Rescue) dogs and serve as an introduction to the hardworking SAR dogs and handlers of Western Montana. Our training group is primarily comprised of search dogs and handlers who are affiliated with local county SAR groups. As a group, we meet weekly for canine SAR training exercises at various locations within western or west central Montana. As individuals, we also train with our local county SAR units. Training exercises vary according to the time of year and desires of the participants.
