Our Training Method
Our Detection training programs use Markers/Clickers during introductory phases of training. Following a logical progression of crawl, walk, and run our detection programs are based on teaching the indication first, which is not only logical but very easy to teach and streamlines the remaining skills in detection. Because the system builds on sub-skills and then compound skills, the method is suitable for any dog, drive level and degree of handler experience.
Scent Work Seminars
These One on One sessions focus on three levels of training; One Dog, One Handler, One Team. Target audience is teams that need focused training without other teams present. As an NACSW ANWI we can offer K9 Nose Work® (K9NW) training methodology. Additionally we differentiate training, using techniques from other disciplines, including using markers/clickers, to meet your dogs needs.
These sessions are tracked with progression in mind. Target audience for these sessions is 5-10 teams. These sessions are formatted to let one dog work at a time, but rotate through each dog during 1-1.5 hour segments. From Introductory, Intermediate, Advanced, and Continuing Scent Work Classes.
