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.
