On Target: Training Detector Dogs with Randy Hare: Detection 3 is the third 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 active alert response and builds upon the critical Objectives 1 through 8 taught in titles 1 and 2 to complete training in real world detection scenarios. In addition, Randy demonstrates in detail the modifications for Objectives 1 through 15 in training a passive alert response dog.
“Randy Hare's odor detection training program is brilliant! He masterfully engineers the powers of operant and classical conditioning to create a motivated, reliable, and highly accurate detection dog,” states Pamela Reid, Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist and Author of Excel-erated Learning! How Dogs Learn and How Best to Teach Them. “Hare turns traditional training on its ear by taking all the factors that can mess up a dog and building them right into his program so that he ends up with a dog that understands its job completely independent of its handler.”
