Area search is searching in woods or beach or so, with no lead on the dog. The dog doesn't follow a track but uses his nose in combination of the wind direction and this combination leads him to persons. The most common way is to send your dog to the left and to the right and you walk over a imaginary line through the area, so you know where the dog has searched. Our dogs are trained that when he smells a person or a corpse, he goes checking it and he let the handler know on a certain way he has found some one. It is a very short story about area search. More rescue search are:On disaster, in water, in snow.
