This is Us crew follow search and rescue dog, Nino, on training mission

Over the rubble, through the tunnel and down the ladder they go. It's all in a day's training for Search & Rescue dogs like Nino, pictured above. It takes more than a year of training for a dog to become certified
for this valuable but dangerous work. It takes a very committed human, like Marin County Fire Captain, Jim Boggeri, to teach a dog this lifesaving trick.

Boggeri, like all "Canine Specialists" is a volunteer. He and his first dog, Recon, were involved in many rescue missions including at Hurricane Katrina and, closer to home, a mud slde in Mill Valley.

This is Us followed Boggeri as he put Nino through his paces on the local training course.
