  • Training Perspectives Q & A: What can I do to get my dog to stop focusing on cats? / We often use our dogs for evidence searches. My dog, a six year old Malinois, always picks up the item. He searches well and always locates the evidence, but instead of lying down on it, he picks it up. / I work a single-purpose narc dog. He searches well in training and on side roads. However, when we are on a busy highway, which is during most of our searches, he is very distracted by the noise and traffic.
