Once Carmen got to the house. She wiped the steering wheel and door handle with a special sealed cloth and then placed it in the Ziploc bag. She made sure never to touch the cloth herself. She only wanted Jamie's scent on the piece of cloth.
Then Carmen got the dog out of the truck. Hooked up the working harness. Let the dog take a sniff and off they went to find the boys.
From what I understand the most important point for the dog is to follow Jamie's scent and not the boys. So at one point Jamie broke off the trail and did a big loop and then Jakob did the same thing. The dog followed Jamie's loop, but not Jakob's. Then when she found them the dog was suppose to go up to Jamie and not the boys. Sounds like he did a good job.
And most important he found them.
Here are some photos I took in Duluth this weekend. Enjoy.
