K9 trainer, handler, and retired game warden Roger Guay and his partner, Saba, will take you on a journey to show you how canines use their capabilities to find both people and evidence, including tracking fleeing suspects, locating spent shells, discarded handguns, hidden money and buried bodies. You will learn how canines are invaluable at solving both human and wildlife crimes. During his 25 years as a Maine game warden, Roger worked on hundreds of searches and recoveries utilizing canines. His agency’s canine teams became some of the best in the country at tracking, evidence recovery, and cadaver searches.

Roger & Saba will show you the science behind the scenes, the tools, and how canines play the most important role in these daunting operations.
