Has anyone cross trained a live find dog with a bark and refind alert for HR? If so, did you leave the refind in for HR, or did you train a different alert?

I would really like a sit or down + bark at HR source but since he already has a refind, I wonder if it would be easier just to leave the refind in place?

Well, I am doing that right now... It is definitely easier with my trail dog to teach a sit or down then my area search dog.. He defaults to a refind alert alot, so I have to stay on top of his ranging so I can remind him to sit and not find me... He is good about remembering his source location if he does a refind alert and he sits on his own once he has 'shown me', however, I would much prefer a sit/down upon finding the source...

I'm not going to be the best to offer advice as this is my first area search dog (other was trail and some cross over HR). I know others will have much better advice and information :)
