I have also bought the book from ARDA, and much prefer Susan Bulanda's. This breaks it down into simple steps that lay a solid foundation, and it walks you through basic training into advanced work.

Professional and volunteer SAR workers will profit from the Bulandas’ expertise on training the dog to alert, managing the search mission, choosing and socializing a SAR dog, and how to train dogs for specific commands (such as bar, turn around, go to an object, check, slow, crawl through and others). Readers curious about the fascinating work of the SAR canine will enjoy the general chapters about the history of SAR, an explanation of how dogs use scent to locate people or objects, and the functions of the SAR dog.This highly specialized training manual offers precise direction for SAR workers for every possible kind of mission, identifying the goals, target skills, methods and problem solving for each type of search. Color photographs and line drawings help to elucidate difficult concepts explained in the text. A resources section and index conclude this 254-page volume.

Met Susan Bullanda Several years ago at a NASAR Conference in Richmond, Va . She really impresses you with her down-to-earth approach of teaching and informing . When I saw this book was being revised I knew it had to be another winner . I wasn't disappointed . There is a lot of new material as well as revised older proceedures presented in a very clear and distinct way without bogging you down in too much detail.

I am only a little ways into Ready and I have to say that I feel differently about many of the things I 'knew' about dog training. I put a lot of time personally training my last shepherd Cappy. He was an amazing dog in so many ways, but sometimes made the wrong choices (don't we all). The author's thoughts on fostering the dog's intuition over strict obedience make a lot of sense. Cappy once ran straight down a cliff to come when I was calling. I know it is going to be hard to train a dog that knows when to think for himself and when to just be a good boy and trust my judgment but can't wait to get started.
This has to be one of the best books wrote on the Search and Rescue dog. I can't get enough of reading it and re-reading it.
