The INDICATION is the bedrock foundation of detection training. This title details the steps in creating an incredibly precise, clear, persistent, durable, passive indication to 5 odors from the very start. The search is taught as a by-product of indication training allowing the indication to remain forefront until fully learned and conditioned. The methodology demonstrated in this title bypasses the major obstacles produced by antiquated detection training techniques.
“This title is important on many levels”, commented Doug Calhoun, the President of Canine Training Systems. "There is a new sport for pet owners called Nose Work which is incredibly popular that any dog can participate in. The sport has, up until now, relied upon antiquated techniques that modern trainers of professional canine detector dogs reject. This title bridges that gap and brings a modern detection methodology to the masses in a system that any dog can excel at. Because of the difference in genetic strengths of a German Shepherd or Belgian Malinois (a typical police K9) and a Pug or Chihuahua, a system of training to cover all these variations and drive levels was elusive. This title closes that gap. Any dog can master detection work utilizing these techniques. The only difference will be in the extremes of intensity of searching and duration of the alert which is the difference between a pet, sport and professional application. It applies to all dogs because it's based in how dogs learn, clarity of communication and teaching the indication first which is what is of primary importance.”
