047: Proofing Building Searches – Part 2

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discuss:

  • The importance of quality decoy work in training suspect encounters.
  • Complex behavior chains as a story.
  • The critical nature of hide placement and multiple suspects.
  • Variations in hot searches, warm searches, and cold searches.

Key Takeaways:

  • The searching piece can be irrelevant if you don’t have a proper start.
  • Using multiple entry points makes the site a new picture for the dog.
  • Be systematic, use a line to create a level of boundary with the dog so you can clear the rooms closest first.
  • Don’t stack too many variables on top of each other. Make sure the dogs get big wins during training.
  • Pick the best dog that’s available for you at the time, no matter what it looks like, what breed it is, what gender it is.

“I don’t believe in one-and-done. When you’re working on building searches you must do multiple repetitions, just like when you’re doing tracking.” — Jerry Bradshaw
