On Target and Teaching Focused Scenting Methods: Auto-Shaping and the Detection Dog

Video Description:

This two part video 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.
