A SKILL YOU MAY JUST NEED TO KNOW! HOW TO DEFEAT TRACKING DOGS!
let's talk about defeating tracking dogs now there's a lot of different techniques and there's a lot of people that think of a lot of different things okay some things work some things don't uh but feating a dog tracker team is very difficult just out of the gate it's it's.
It's almost impossible but the thing is is that would you rather have a shot of losing the tracking team with a dog or just completely give up so in my belief system that you should know these techniques and if it ever comes to that situation at least you have them in your toolbox they're something you can employ but a lot of times it's not about.
Defeating the dog it's about defeating the Handler okay cuz the do the dogs are highly trained they have a good nose so you want to defeat the tracker the Handler the dog handler but there's lots of techniques you can utilize and this is this uh what we're going to start off with goes for evasion just in general um a lot of times when a tracking team.
Starts tracking someone they have a Ford tracking team that moves ahead of where they believe you're going to go so in the case of let's say we are we're moving this is us here where the the green good guy these are the Communist looking for us right and and obviously you don't want them to be this close to you cuz I mean you're pretty.
Much caught if they're this close but just for demonstration purposes we'll have them here okay so we got the Comm communist tracking team here maybe Red Dawn China whatever so anyway what we're going to do is let's say our objective is we're moving to where this place right here this is this is where we want to go.
Out of the gate we don't want to keep running or moving towards this area because what the the tracking team will do is they'll look on a map look for key terrain features maybe they see something here they think you're going here they realize it they'll send the for tracking team ahead of you to cut you off and you'll run right into them.
So what you're going to do out of the gate is completely move the opposite direction okay and you may say well why would I do that that's taking more time well you're trying to get rid of a tracking team so you're going to move complete opposite direction so then they'll start looking on the map over here and maybe they're looking here so.
They send a for tracking team over here and then you cut back across this way okay so that's that's what you're going to do just in in in general knowledge okay when you're talking about dogs scent they're they're they're picking up your scent so one thing you can do is carry something in a ziplock bag of another individual that's not you and.
That way you have the scented materials of another individual and you can start dropping them early on in your evasion movement so it will confuse the dog cuz they're going to smell other other scents right so keeping those materials with you in your pack Ziploc so they're not absorbing your scent and you drop it they're going to smell that scent it.
Could help confuse them you want to make the dog handler believe that he can't trust the dog that the dog is confused when that starts happening he starts second guessing what the dog's information they're relaying to him right and then he starts trying to analyze it slows them down and it gives you more time in.
Evasion time and distance is what you're looking for okay distance apart and time another strategy you can use is move through a thick dense area okay and whenever you do that you want to move in a zigzag pattern through the dense foilage and terrain so you you'll be zigzagging and it'll cause the dog to go in this zig zigzag pattern looking for.
You okay so zigzagging the other thing you can do is is a big figure four right and if you do that so you're maybe going maybe you're going to this direction here and so you go way ahead you cut back across and then cut a figure four this will also leave doubt in the the Handler's mind these These are techniques to trick and fool the.
Handler not necessarily the dog the thing is is that the sents will be picked up very easily because the the foliage the the material out in nature will hold your C if the more dense it is if you're trying to alleviate your scent you want to be in an open area something that has a lot of sunlight cuz Sun destroys scent and a lot of wind to to.
Wind dust the area and get rid of your scent and spread it around okay so obviously being in an open area you're more uh visible to the human eye so that's a problem but these are just strategies that you can use to defeat when you're trying to defeat the dog handler maybe he'll lose the scent you know a lot of.
People think you can go in water dogs can can smell all that as well a lot of people think you can lay down Pepper or something like that they doesn't bother the tracking dog there's been tons of studies on that tracking dogs does not get affected by pepper spray now those those corny things that people say uh on the internet they they can smell through.
Those things so again it's not about defeating a dog it's defeating the Handler the other thing you can do like the technique we taught before is you move and make a fish hook you can move and make a fish hook set up an ambush so when they come this way you Ambush and then you can take out the Handler right taking out the dog.
Won't won't do any good cuz then they'll know where you are you have to take out the Handler at that point the dog is trained to stay with the Handler so after you take the Handler down the dog's going going to stay there with the Handler and so the the the danger of the doll coming to get you is over the last couple things about scent obviously um.
You got to use the restroom when you when you urinate you don't urinate in the same spot you dig dig a hole urinate deep dig the hole urinate and you want to do that in different places you don't want to do it in the same location because that scent will get strong other thing is if if you uh you know deficate solid material you want to keep bags.
That way you can seal it up and it has to be sealed up very well so there's no smell uh emitting from it um but you got to pack it out you got to pack all this stuff out all your trash you don't smoke don't use any type of tobacco all these sort of things are very strong smelling U maybe not to you because you become desensitized to them over time a lot of.
Smokers don't know that they smell you know like smoke but to a nonsmoker you're very strong and to a dog they can smell it very well uh dip that's something else I remember being in a boot camp on the rifle range and and I used to dip back back in those days and I smelled uh the the winter green Kodiak from my instructors from.
Far away you know um and I'm a human so that's the thing you want to eliminate your scent signatures piss and holes pack out your your Solid Waste seal it up and uh all your trash and things like that don't leave anything behind anyhow guys this couple techniques to defeat a dog tracking team hopefully you enjoyed it.
Make sure you stay frosty stay strapped stay dangerous take care
