I have connected with a lot of SAR folks on Facebook and I am glad I have. Recently one of those people recommended this book to me How to Train A Police Bloodhound and Scent Discriminating Patrol Dog and it is beyond helpful with training and is intended for any breed of dog. I am only a few chapters in and wish I had known about this book sooner. Some of the tips I will definitely use with Ruger and some others I will keep in my tool belt, as I do not think they will improve on what Ruger and I already have going. It is very inspiring when veterans of SAR are so willing to help us newbies be successful. Hopefully one day I can do the same for someone else.
