When I was mainly a victim, I brought a small back pack with a snack, coffee thermos, and a book. I also had a small blanket or tarp depending on the weather. Often you are placed well before the dog and handler even start--make sure you have a radio so you know when they start!! Bug spray is a must as well!! Those bugs love to hover around you when you are stuck in the woods!

As soon as I heard or saw the dog, I would make sure to be still, and enjoy watching the dog work its way in. That has always been my favorite part of training!!

I am sure the handlers will tell you what to do and not to do, but one thing I will mention because it happened to me a time or two with new victims----Dont help the dog at all. I had one victim who was so eager to have the dog succeed that when he was close and working out the scent (they really dont see you unless you move), she said 'psssstttt' to give him a hand. I was annoyed and amused all at the same time LOL.

Have fun!!!!
