4 day dead old body, six dogs within 50ft, open field...

... and not a single dog picked it up.

Would you expect a live find dog to make that find, re-find and indication on a four day dead old body when the temperatures have been in their sixties?

Thanks, that is what I was thinking too. I can't wrap it around my mind, why on earth a live find dog is expected to do Cadaver dog work.

A dog trained to find a live person, is not going to find a dead one. Is that what they were expecting?

My Malinois would absolutely have found it. She can find a dead "anything" in a 12 acre park. Then she rolls in it!

She knows when there's a stray baseball hiding in the overgrown areas of the park.

OK I don't do SAR but the thread title intrigued me. Four days dead, temps in their 60s, 50 feet away, heck I would expect all the *people* to find it!

Other than the Mal part, thats my Abbie. Any time I see her rolling in the grass I know there is something dead there... A few days ago it was a tiny lizard.
