SEARCHING 

Another technique used in Working Trials as well as Police and Search and Rescue work, is that of Open Searching. The dogs use a number of skills attained by themselves to search, usually off lead, a designated area of mostly either woodland or open fields however also used indoors within buildings! A mixture of tracking, air scenting and hunting allow the dogs to use their searching techniques along with some directional assistance of the handler to locate a person.
