Location
Plainfield PD Annex, 4004 Clarks Creek Rd., Plainfield IN 46168

Instructors: Howard Young – White Beard K9

TIME: 2p-9p (lunch will be provided)

COST: $100 (working spot) ** REGISTRATION LIMITED TO 30 working teams.  $50 Audit spots (unlimited)

This course will cover everything from selection to tailoring your dog’s training to best meet the high demands placed on law enforcement K9 teams. Every handler has specific strengths and weaknesses, as do their K9 partners.  The course includes discussions regarding a variety of training arrangements and exercises to enhance your dog’s working ability.

Hard work and sustained effort are essential ingredients but are fruitless if training is poorly designed or not practiced to fidelity.  

This course takes a deeper look into what makes some teams more successful than others and aims to identify those elements and provide practical training recommendations for the dual-purpose K9.

This training is open to Military/Law enforcement only.  

ABOUT THE TRAINER

Howard is a civilian police K9 trainer located in Shelby NC. From a young age, he had a passion for working dogs, along with a hunger to learn.  This passion put him on a path to assist with training police and protection dogs with an acquaintance at the Shelby NC Police Department.  

He was offered a job to be a civilian police K9 trainer and for over 25 years, he has been employed to oversee the procurement, development, and training of the Shelby Police Department’s K9 teams. He has since contracted with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office to oversee the training there, as well.

Common Scents – “On Target Method” is an orientation and introduction (or refresher to those that have attended in past) to Randy’s On Target detection training system. This course is designed to give the attendee an excellent insight into this training method. This course will review the techniques of Randy’s “On Target Method” and learn how it differs from the traditional methods of detection training.

Techniques learned will show how the K9s learn for themselves, that their eyes and ears mean nothing when it comes to earning the reward object. Training this way eliminates 95% of the cues that may cause false indications.
