In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw, Cameron Ford, and Canine Paradigm discuss:
- Using markers in detection, the different types of markers, and training with those markers.
- Upgrading to new efficiencies and technologies as science and research progress.
- Training dogs in drive and drive capping.
- Learning how to read dogs during training exercises.
- The changing landscape of training due to current events of police/working dogs.
- Focus on the task, not the cosmetics of the indication. You don’t want to take away from search or odor recognition.
- Good training is good training, no matter what you do.
- Independence is great! You do not want the dog to be completely dependent on the handler.
- Put the focus on the hunting, the detection. It’s not called finding. You don’t want to be focused on the end.
- The earlier you train the final response, the more you have to worry about flashing.
“You have to be flexible as a trainer and train to the dog in front of you. If you do that, you will get the result you’re looking for.” — Cameron Ford
