036: Direct v. Indirect Detection Protocols

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • What to look for in a detection dog.
  • Benefits of teaching hunting first.
  • Eyeing detection washouts earlier with direct reward systems.
  • Understanding action patterns and how they fit into detection training.

Key Takeaways:

  • The hunting drive should be of primary importance.
  • Build the action pattern strongly, final response is an obedience pattern that can be taught later.
  • A stop and stare is going to degrade.
  • When working a large quantity of dogs, not all are going to be the 1% unicorn dogs.
