David Winners It really engages the dog on a primitive level. Nothing tires a dog out like a long search. Their respiration goes through the roof, on top of the physical and mental exertion.

blackshep That sound really great David, I think you will do really well on that venture with your expertise!

It's catching on like wildfire, and I think it's such a great thing for people with working dogs. It's mentally tiring, so good for high energy pups or dogs with physical or behavioural limitations. I'm having so much fun doing this with my dog and she just loves it!

David Winners LOL... fight for someplace warm!

I wanted to say that I'm not knocking anyone's training methods. I commend them for designing a program that is suitable for most dogs. They have started something that I wish was around 20 years ago. Hats off to them.

There seems to be far more interest than good trainers right now. It seems like a good time to get involved.

I'm going to have a hard time not washing dogs out though. I want it to be fun for everybody, me included, so I won't be stuffing square pegs into round holes. It will be fun developing a program.

Okay now were all going to be fighting over where the army stations you..lol

I agree and even though our trainer is one of the founders (dont hate me..lol..Dex has been with this trainer since 4 months) I agree that people will always have different ideas and opinions on how to do something and should be allowed to. No one should be forced to train just one particular way, because that doesnt work for everyone.

Dex and I are just doing the classes for fun and really enjoying it. He's good at it. Who knows maybe one day we will change our minds and do a trial.

I'm ok with that! They probably won't like my dog's either. I've watched lots of trial videos

They are going to have trouble keeping a handle on things when more experienced detection dog trainers start getting involved, just like Andrew. Wait till Mike and Ariel from Loganhaus get into the game.

Thanks for the info. I'll get a hold of Andrew.
