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.

“I am not one to rave over every new found training method. How much can be new after 30 years in full time dog training?  However, I can't help being excited and motivated after seeing your detector dog videos. I believe this will revolutionize detector dog training worldwide,” states Melanie Guthrie of Guthrie International.  “I have been a professional dog trainer since the early 1970's and owner/operator of Guthrie's International. I've spent lots of time working with the Dutch and German Police dog trainers long before the borders opened. Still plenty of practice in and around Amsterdam, Enschede.  Their methods are good, however they don't compare with your program.  I believe the Hare Method produces the most reliable detector dogs I have ever seen..”
