There are a couple of ways that dogs can ﬁnd missing people. Before inventions like the telegraph and phone. E. The pigeons were able to travel from country to country and relay the messages with no trouble. The dog and the handler need to have a good relationship so that the handler can understand these cues from the dog. Greeks and Romans. Another type of search method is ‘trailing’ or ‘tracking’. stock information travelled from London all the way to Paris by way of the carrier pigeon! In the 1800s. the frozen arctic and jungles and many pigeons were injured while carrying through their messages. The Greeks used pigeons to spread news of the winners at the Olympic games and the Romans used them to send messages about the outcomes of battles.

Pigeons weren’t just famous letter carriers. Your beloved pet might just be the next hero on the evening news. For this reason. The dog might jump up in the air if they find a person alive. Many dogs received medals and were even promoted to the rank of an officer for their services. (5) Homing pigeons were widely used for carrying secret messages from one unit to another.
