Kat Albrecht is a former police officer-turned-pet-detective who is pioneering the science of finding lost pets. She has trained search dogs to locate missing people, criminals, physical evidence, and lost pets. Kat is the founder of Missing Pet Partnership, a national nonprofit working to develop community-based lost pet services.

Disillusioned by a police career where her dog-tracking techniques and brilliant search dogs rarely got a chance to shine, Kat started training her retired Weimaraner, Rachel, to search for lost animals with unbelievable results. To the amazement of her colleagues, Kat decided to make her unconventional use of search dogs a full-time career, becoming the only law-enforcement-based pet detective and the founder of the first-ever pet detective academy in the world.

Using investigative techniques such as search probability theory, behavioral profiling, searches with cat-detection dogs, scent-trailing dogs, and high-tech equipment, Kat Albrecht has already trained over 200 pet detectives in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Italy, Australia, and Ireland who have helped thousands of pet owners locate their lost pets.
