046: Proofing Building Searches – Part 1

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • Prerequisites and sound fundamentals for having a sound building search.
  • Muzzle desensitization and dead equipment neutrality.
  • Passive and active suspect encounters.
  • Finding balance in your searching.

Key Takeaways:

  • You want a proper start – the dog needs to understand what it is doing in any particular search.
  • Generalize the dog’s response to finding a subject in the search, you don’t want them to be surprised by finding someone.
  • Make sure the dog understands that passivity equals threat.
  • If you wouldn’t do it in detection, don’t do it in bite work.

“You, as the handler, have no control over when your dog perceives a threatening encounter. Based on how we train these dogs and their capacity for prey work, one of the things we have to keep in mind is that we don’t control what that dog perceives in any given moment.” — Jerry Bradshaw
