Searching any area starts with searching deliberately and with purpose. Search patterns will vary but they share a common goal of providing organization and a systematic structure to ensure that no items or productive areas are missed. Deliberately using hide placements, and reward history, can drive search dog behavior using context clues to generalize to environmental/contextual cues and search productive search areas they’ve received rewards at before. The dogs past experience paired with motivation to work, will increase the likelihood that they will search areas without any input from their handlers. Then the handler’s role is to learn to manage the search and support their dogs as they search.


This webinar has been approved for 2 NACSW CEUs.


Does your dog ping-pong around the search area?

Perhaps introducing the concept of patterns, through the use of thoughtful hide placement and reward history, will help.
