Children and adults have joined together to bike, raise awareness and money for local charities. In last couple of years, we have supported Boone County Humane Society and Zionsville Fire Department.

This year, we have chosen Central Indiana K9 Association, and hope to raise $5,000. Central Indiana K9 Association provides training, care, love, and much more for service dogs that have served our veterans and law enforcement professionals.

WHEN: July 7-8-9

TIME: 10-17 (lunch will be provided)

WHERE: Hosted by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department K9 Unit,
3345 W Vermont St, Indianapolis, IN  46222

INSTRUCTOR: Randy Hare / Alpha K9 – or   

 $50.00  (working spot) ** REGISTRATION LIMITED TO 35 ATTENDEES

We at CIK9 are excited to announce our 2nd training event of 2021, Jul 8, 9, 10, co-hosted by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department K9 Unit and instructed by Randy Hare, Alpha K9 founder and international dog trainer. 

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.
