Great discussion points, thanks all.
It isn't done but I feel that it should be. Also the person just waves the branch around and I really don't want them to hit on the dog although sometimes a light glancing contact is made due to the speed of the dog coming in (they plow right through the branch) to the victim.

Agree 100% Rick! As you know there are dogs that have natural aggression and "aggression" as taught through sport.

I think this could be a big factor in how a dog reacts in a SAR situation.

HR/cadaver/boat work/article search vs live find could also be a huge factor in selecting which direction to go in the decision with any dog worked in both SAR and bite work.
