Just playing around with the Dutch Shepherd, imprinting him for detection work. .  Lots more to come as we build this thing.. Stick with us, once we get her worked out we will be running hard for the fences, lots to show you as we build Dutch and take Mori to new levels in his training!

Love this one, ordered an extra large, should have been 2x extra large.. Boys in blue should get a kick out of this one down in San Diego tomorrow. Last day at the scent seminar with all kinds of cool info coming in. Been having a blast tired as heck but it's all been well worth it..

They say talking baby talk to a child isn't a good thing.. With a dog I don't see how it could be a bad thing... ;-)

Heading to the river this morning with these two.. Dutch, the dutch shepherd pup is in his "People Places & Things" phase of development with his training.. This is were I socialize the animal with as much environment as I can. Mixing in a slow build of agility into the work.. Not the sport of agility, the environmental kind that I've been doing for years.. Use parks for much of this early agility confidence building development that I do.. The river should give him some horses to see and interact with.. This should be fun ;-) I will then stop by the feed store and let him get petted by a few folks and walk the store a little bit.. The next few months there will be much of this type of work mixed into his overall daily routine.. This afternoon we will be heading over to another trainers place to pick up a lesson from him, with a few things I want to pick his brain on. Pick some Dutch boxes up for the scent work.. Laying off Mori with the scent work, till I go through the class at Alderhorst, as I don't want to confuse the animal. Would rather his head be a clean slate so we can slide into there learning program with him over there, then have me screw him all up..

It's a Dogs World at my house.. Believe it or not I just cleaned that carpet a couple weeks ago.. Back yard is all dirt with nothing but little particles they drag into the house with them.. Tough to keep the house clean with these flea bags but I wouldn't have it any other way.. Have a great weekend everybody..
Ring Trial in Compton this weekend. Next weekend is an IPO Sch trial. Love the fact I'm sitting in what I call doggie heaven with all the working dog activity thats going around me all the time.. On my way out the door to do some tracking.. Ttyl8r

Scent Detection Training: Explosive Detection

Just got back from our Police K9 scent detection seminar up in San Diego.. This is not the same thing as civilian nose work.. The applications are way more intense as you might amagine. I have a long way to go and a lot to learn.. This little video might have to be one of the last ones I show you as I get into areas that are best kept away from the general public, as we delve into the real world of explosive scent detection.. At the end of this you see me tossing the reward. I miss my timing all together and Mori is looking at me. Not what you want we your trying to teach the dog to lock up on the odor.. All About timing and I just do t have the right timing as of yet, we'll get there with practice..

Alderhorst Police K9 kennel's for our Explosive Detection course on the 15th, wish me luck..

MF.

Very sad news..  Q,ing up and listening to some of the best music on the planet now. Hurts but feels good at the same time, honoring his memory by listening to his music blasting throughout the house.. . R.I.P.  Glenn.. ;-(

Love it when Google puts a little added signature touch on my day like this..

Had the puppy out for his first day with the children's play ground today.. A Dutch Shephard, he will be starting what I call, his dedicated people places and things phaze of training soon. Keep in mind that the puppy is for sale as a dedicated executive protection or police K9 prospect, available in the next year or so. Unless he washes out, witch his highly unlikely with his breeding and background.. Interested in getting a well trained dog like this for yourself or your family, give me a yell. Be more the happy to help you aquire something like this for you and your family..
