Presented by: Randy Hare, Konnie Hein & Elizbeth Kreitler

DVD 2 disc set - run time 2 hr 58 min

Filmed at the 2013 Penn Vet Working Dog Conference "The Art & Science of Training: Dog and Handler"

This two part DVD includes:

  • Seminar: Randy Hare- “On Target” and “Teaching Focused Scenting Methods”: Auto-Shaping and the Detection Dog
  • Hands-On: Randy Hare- “On Target” All Levels
  • Hands-On: Konnie Hein and Elizabeth Kreitler- “Teaching Focused Scenting” All Levels

Utilizing Randy Hare’s method emphasizing “The Game”, this trio offers narcotics, explosive, cadaver and live find search dogs an innovative training tool. The dog learns that scent is the only predictor of success in obtaining the game, so he relies only on his sense of smell, and not his eyes or ears. Randy, Konnie and Elizabeth teach a method centered around the principle of auto-shaping, where the dog educates himself, allowing for clearer and deep-seated learning.  This system allows the dog to learn to separate sensory input received through his eyes and ears from his sense of smell, so he relies on his nose to achieve success.

Disappointed Review by Charles
These DVD's are definitely nothing more than an introduction. I should have purchased the DVD's from Randy on his system. He didn't go into the clicker session at all. (Posted on 3/10/14)
Excellent Material Review by Ramachandran
This DVD introduces a groundbreaking concept in scent work. Making the dog ignore all stimuli except for the scent. Randy Hare is an expert and he clearly demonstrates how to teach a dog to not to trust his eyes , ears, handler and other rewards and trust just his nose.

I found it highly educational. 5 Stars!!! (Posted on 12/11/13)
