We aren't cheap but you are getting 36 years of
professional K9 SAR experience. I haven't raised our
prices in 30 years.
We aren't a member of the Better Business Bureau,
but we do hold an A plus rating with them.
Note: I have two search dogs. I'm only allowed to
fly with one in cabin. Because of this, I do not
have a credible dog sitter that I can trust to leave
my other SAR dog with while I respond to private
searches on the east coast, or mid west calls, this
means I drive to most of my searches.
The cost? Unless you are willing to hire a PRIVATE
JET which costs thousands of dollars so I may fly
both SAR Dogs in cabin, I will be driving.
I charge $25.00 dollars per hour driving time each
way. (Round trip) So go to map quest, Map quest from
Longview, Washington to your location.
Example: Longview, Wa. to Seattle. 6 hours round
trip x $25.00 = $150.00 (Must take in consideration
(rush hour traffic-construction etc)
Then ad the cost of fuel 128 miles each way x 2
(round trip) = 256 miles divide by one / third (Cost
of fuel) = $86.00
Meals $40.00 per day.
Search time $200.00 per hour. (96% of my searches
last one hour or less). 1 hour x 200 =$200.00
Total owed $476.00 then if you are paying by credit
card (We don't accept checks of any kind). Cash or
