Blake began training bloodhounds in 2006. With his experience in search and recovery and criminal tracking, Blake saw a need for a Human Remains Detection (HRD) dog.
In 2008 Blake began training and handling his own cadaver. Blake has been deployed all over Arkansas and Southeast Missouri for search and recovery efforts. Blake’s HRD dog, Roxy, has even been seen on NBC’s “The Today Show”.
Blake has trained under some of the most recognized dog trainers in Search and Rescue such as Jonni Joyce, Lisa Higgins, and Texas T.A.S.K. In 2011, Blake attended Tarheel Canine Training Academy under the direction of Jerry Bradshaw. There Blake learned the most recent and innovative training methods in detection dogs.
Blake has also attended advanced patrol dog courses and decoy training. Blake believes that training starts with finding a dog with the proper drives to insure a lifetime of success.
