Meet the Team
They are our canine family members with a day job — and they work plenty of nights, too. The MARK9 search dogs are owned by the handlers who work them and are trained collaboratively by their handlers, team trainers, and outside coaches.
These dogs generally work search and rescue for eight to ten years, and when they retire, they remain with the families they love. Each dog has a personality and charisma all his or her own, with two things in common: all our dogs are people-friendly, and they all love their work.
Service by MARK9 dogs has been awarded by the Oklahoma Veterinary Hall of Fame, the Plano Police Department, Dallas Police Department, and the AKC, among other organizations.
