This is the eighth and last episode of the 2021 National Search Dog Alliance Podcast Conference, an eight-part series on the past, present, and future of canine search and rescue. 

In today's episode, I talk with Domingo Sauceda and Eric Darling in separate interviews.

Second, we hear from Eric Darling. Eric is a member of  Regional Task Force 7 with Ventura County Fire Department through their Urban Search & Rescue Task Force as a Canine Search Specialist.
