Kat Albrecht pioneered the science of finding lost pets. As a police officer, she trained search dogs to locate missing people, criminals, physical evidence. When she trained her Weimaraner, Rachel, to search for lost animals, she decided to make finding lost pets a full time career, becoming the only law-enforcement-based pet detective in the United States. Using her police training and investigative techniques (search probability theory, behavioral profiling, scent-trailing dogs, and high-tech equipment) Kat Albrecht has trained over 125 pet detectives in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Ireland who've helped reunite thousands of pet owners with their lost pets.
