Publisher's Summary

Pet Tracker is the remarkable story of Kat Albrecht, the nation's first police detective-turned-pet detective. Her pioneering experiences are astonishing and revealing, and the time-tested lost pet recovery methods that could one day help you, too.
Disillusioned by a police career where her bloodhound-tracking techniques and brilliant search dogs rarely got a chance to shine, Kat started training her retired Weimaraner, Rachel, to search for lost pets - with unbelievable results. To the amazement of her colleagues, Kat decided to make her unconventional use of search dogs a full-time career, in spite of being mocked and told she was "having a pipe dream" if she thought she could make a living as a pet detective.
Using investigative CSI techniques such as probability theory, behavioral profiling, forensic testing, and searches with scent-detection dogs, Kat Albrecht (and the other pet detectives she's trained) has helped thousands of pet owners locate their lost dogs, cats, snakes, turtles, ferrets, and other domestic pets. Along the way, Kat faced one-of-a-kind challenges and unexpected roadblocks (how do you convince a forensics lab to conduct a DNA test on a cat's whisker?), but these challenges have always been balanced by the unique joys of reuniting missing pets with their owners. Kat's unlikely career path and her unconventional spiritual journey to find her "life purpose" ultimately transformed her from a dissatisfied cop into a woman who found her true calling.
Fans of Virginia Lanier's Death in Bloodhound Red series will be intrigued by Kat's bloodhound tracking stories while fans of memoirs like Marley and Me and Merle's Door will find heart and soul in Rachel's inspirational story.
