    The main thing that caught my attention was the total lack of a search pattern, which technically will help clear areas must faster and with more accuracy.

    There is so much that can be winged in a small areas, but once a whole home or floor of a building needs to be swept there will be much-wasted energy and time, not to mention no way to keep track of what exactly was “cleared”.

    So basically i like what he is saying, but he seems to have a different experience with the power of search patterns, perhaps with handlers that do not let the dog take over when necessary.

    I find it similar to “tracking”. In sport work handlers tell the dog exactly how to track and dont let the dog be more efficient when it is time.

    There is a time for us to lead and a time to recognize when the dog should take over. That is my experience to clear HUUUUGE areas efficiently and accurately without the dog burning out.
