Victoria tries her hand at handling an arson dog during the drills and gets critiques from the trainers and fellow handlers. 2-time handler John Galaska describes what it's like training with a new dog after already going through the program once before with an earlier partner. Mike, Billy and Paul begin to describe the power of food in training these high-drive dogs as they refine their basic drill skills. Victoria chats with experienced handler Jerry Means about coming back to training for a 3rd time and the pitfalls of placing previous expectations on the new dogs.
