We went through that years ago with narc dogs. It was the norm to not show misses, false alerts etc in training logs. Finally a court case came down and duh, dogs are not perfect. Now we notate an issue and document what was done to rectify the problem. This is how it should be done and is now how we all do it. "perfect" performance in training logs damages the credibility of the handler because unless the handler is dragging the dog to the aid and soliciting the alert, it is not possible for the dog to be 100%
also,with regard to a high find. I never put stuff in trees. 34 years as a cop and I have seen one hanging in the woods.. There is not going to be a little HR up in a tree. It is all over the ground etc etc. Dog winds the whole thing. high finds are better taught by something more realistic such as in a rock pile, a lumber pile, up on a rock ledge etc. not trees.

It is one of those "certification" scenarios that someone (I think all three of these organizations) decided that you have to test for....so if you miss it....We do train more on rubble and brush piles (and also in mulch piles) than in trees.. but most of our calls are water, scattered, and searching designated areas for clandestine graves based on some new evidence. Have not had a "tree" search yet but I am only on my 4th year working a cadaver dog.

they put an aid in a tree???? geez. Oh well.
Well, the only way some little aid is getting up a tree is if it falls from the sky I wont get graphic but with a hanging , there is plenty without the dog trying to wind something up a tree., just does not work that way. Have a whole set of HR producing odor. the dog does not work it the same as putting an aid up a tree......
