On Target: Training Detector Dogs with Randy Hare: Detection 2 is the second in the Award-Winning series with Randy Hare. Randy Hare’s approach to Substance Detector Dog Training is groundbreaking. The only Award Winning series of it’s kind; Randy’s approach is decidedly unique, proven and applicable to any substance whether narcotic, explosive or biological. In this title Randy Hare demonstrates his techniques for completing the next 5 Objectives in his detection technique.
Once these objectives are achieved, then the student detector dog will have achieved the special attributes of the Hare-trained detector dog: The dog will possess a crystal-clear understanding of his task, and he will display the kind of obedience to odor that makes it virtually impossible to disturb or distract him during search or indication. He will also exhibit an extraordinary degree of independence and self-belief while searching. Finally, the dog will display pronounced and obvious changes of behavior when he encounters target odor, accompanied by prolonged and intensive efforts to pinpoint the odor source prior to making a final indication.
“I never seen a better way to teach dogs to ignore distractions and work during this stage with a positive attitude,” states Simon Prins, co-author of K9 Behavior Basics- A Manual for Proven Success in Operational Service Dog Training and editor of the largest Dutch dog magazine, Onze Hond (Our Dog). “I do like the fact that you can keep using this training setup during every part of the training, even when the dog is already fully trained and operational.”
