A study of scientific discoveries in tracking and the science of scent and its components. As some feats in tracking seem virtually inconceivable to humans, it is important to understand the science that explains how some of these feats are possible for the canine olfactory system. Believing in what is possible is a big part of successful training and development of a strong street tracker on all surfaces.
A practical training methodology that allows dogs to learn and attach value to components of a human track that make up the entire scent complex of the tracks dogs are able to identify, decipher and follow. Success in tracking lies in the details, the ability to teach these details to the dog is the great puzzle. I try to give a better understanding of this puzzle to aid successful training of tracking dogs.
Fundamentals of Aggression Control
An examination of the underlying causes and obstacles of effective and reliable aggression control leading into a detailed plan of how to train this complex skill.
A clear step by step outline how to teach and train effective and reliable real world aggression control which is essential for any K9.
The skills taught here make K9s more functional in all deployment situations and allow for usage of dogs in even the most complex tactical situations.
Behavioral Science Applied in K9 Training
This lecture bridges the gap between Behavioral Science and practical dog training. The scientific terminology has found its way into modern dog training, however, all too often the science ends at the terminology.
As most scientists, didn’t do practical dog training and most practical trainers have never studied the dry texts of science, the results have been mixed.
The goal of this lecture is to explain the laboratory science and illustrate where and how and IF it fits into K9 training and to what extent. It gives trainers a key to more effective use of techniques and tools already in use and can aid greatly in streamlining training time.
