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.
