I have heard good things about Ramsey. Does he do the prolonged with food? We started our cadaver dog program with the help of a bomb dog guy from Lackland who served first in the military then in the police service as a departmental trainer.

But we started with throws with source material in them. But I have heard detection dog folks praise the Ramsey guy's training.

Andrew introduces the scent right away, he pairs it with the food or toy reward, whichever the dog shows more interest in working for.

Very interesting, Carmen- thanks for sharing! Since my class ended (a few weeks ago) I haven't done much at all with nosework. I did pick up the Ramsey DVD and watched it. I need to get back into some training here...

Sure did! For just a brief moment though. Maybe three or four seconds. I was bummed- I wanted to see more searching!

I thought the video was really good. Lots of info. However, I really disliked that they didn't make it clear from the beginning (as in- on their website) that Ramsey's training method requires to people. There's a handler and a "trainer." The trainer hides the find while the handler obviously handles the dog. I've had difficulty doing both jobs myself, but if you have more than yourself in your house then you should be good to go.

I just received the DVD and I agree that would have been good info to put on their website. I am the only one training with Nikki so this won't work for us, I am not finished watching it yet, so hopefully there is still some useful information on there.

P.S.: Debbie - I saw you and Halo
