Does your dog not indicate well?

When teaching tracking or detection work, almost every dog trainer teaches the indication behavior after the dog knows tracking or searching. Many trainers do not consider correct pointing important in the beginning. This is a missed opportunity and causes problems in the later stages of the training.

For years, we have been helping dog trainers worldwide train for tracking and detection work. Over time we have noticed that most trainers are blinded by making long tracks or long searches. The longer the track the better the results.... right?

However, this is not how it works for us. If the bases for tracking or detection work is not properly formed beforehand, you will always run into problems. Therefore, we never start these exercises before the foundation is properly laid.

"Start with the end" is a famous quote from Dick Staal.

With over 40 years of experience, we have developed a system in which every dog can taught very quickly.

We train based on the dog’s motivation and keep it as simple as possible. We make sure we have a good bases that will eventually leads to great results.

The indication is the basis of success

If it is not clear to the dog that indicating correctly will get him his reward, he will do his work with much less motivation, and the dog will be distracted easier. Also, a dog is more likely to miss objects or show stress such as barking, scratching, biting or licking the object.

The big secret behind our system is, "start with the end". Indication is an end of exercise, yet it is also the bases of the exercise because the dog is indicating the scent it is looking for. Therefore, we begin by teaching the dog the correct scent immediately and teach that indicating correctly will give him his reward. In this way we lay a strong foundation that can be easily expanded in the future.

We combine our methods with our unique food training system, we teach dogs of all ages the indication behavior in just two weeks. Afterwards, you can immediately start tracking or detection work, because the bases is well established. The dog will be very motivated to point to objects correctly, because he knows that this will bring him his reward.

Do you still have questions or doubts? Here you can read the most frequently asked questions:

Is the course in English?

Yes, our native language is Dutch, but all the videos are in English. We have also subtitled the videos in both Dutch and English.

I already have an older dog, can I still take the course?

Yes! Our system works for dogs of all ages. In our videos you will often see puppies, but we use our system to train older dogs as well. For example, during our last seminar we trained an 11 year old dog using our system.

I have very little time...

Training is only a small part of the day. Often we train only two times 10 to 20 minutes a day. This can be done at the times that suit you best, so our system does not require a lot of time.

What does the structure of the course look like?

All of our courses consist of videos. These are recorded by Dick, and he explains everything step by step. The videos, and accompanying PowerPoints, immediately give you a good idea and clear explanation of the exercise shown.

What do I need when I start the course?

Motivation and your dog(s). The items we use in the training sessions are not special items. We clearly explain what you can use, and what you can use as an alternative. You don't need to get any special training items.

How can I watch the course videos?

On any device that has an internet connection and is capable to browse the internet. You can use your computer, laptop, phone or tablet. You can watch the course wherever you want.

How long will the videos be available and how many times can you watch them?

If you have purchased the course then you have and will always have access to it. In our courses we use an extensively tested dripping system. With this system you get all the information you need at that moment. Every day you will receive a new training that you can immediately apply.
