Randy Hare’s approach to Substance Detector Dog Training is groundbreaking.  The only Award Winning title 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 first 3 Objectives in his detection technique.

Detection 1 begins with a critical analysis and review of conventional detector dog training methods, and then presents the core ideas of the Hare Method.  Randy Hare’s method utilizes his invention, the Hare Detection Training Box, to achieve the first three objectives in the system.

“Randy Hare’s methods are uniquely progressive,” states Douglas Calhoun, Canine Training Systems President.  “It completely circumvents the problems commonly seen in traditional Detector Dog systems.  With primary emphasis on the dog being independent of environmental influence, it eliminates many problems that require retraining at a later stage.”
