See...I have a devious plan for the 'just in case'. I do all the dog work. I make it seem over whelming. Hubby wouldn't want any part of that.
My Lacy was brought in to the fold so he could go with hubby when he hunts. The dog blood tracks. I've done all the training etc. Recently, we were at a training event and the trainer told hubby he needed to take the Lacy into the field for a mock track. Hubby's watched me do it a hundred times. No worries.
They never even made it past the first scent marker. Hubby, trainer, dog and a chair were all tangled up in the 50' lead. It was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed. Needless to say, I completed the lesson....yeah, he's my dog.
