Lecture and field demonstration
This class covers the principles of learning (classical and operant conditioning), the use of markers/bridges which will give your K-9 a much clearer understanding of what you want it to learn. We will conduct hands on experiments where participants get to feel for themselves how to communicate and give information. All of this will allow you to become better handler and trainer for your dog. After the class we will spend the following days doing practical exercises teaching or problem solving your detector dog. **For Bomb dog handlers this application will save your life or the life of your K-9!
