Well I new a guy that had a cousin do it once. :) The trick is to teach him to stay on the blood trail and not cold trail other scents. I think he used a blood stained rag tied to a rope and would drag it a little ways a reward the pup for finding it. Then move it farther and farther out. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Be sure to Check the laws in your State, many states don't allow the use of dogs.
