On Target - Training Substance Detector Dogs with Randy Hare- Detection 1
The updated series with Randy Hare is here: On Target v2.0- Training Substance Detector Dogs with Randy Hare- Detection 1
The original videos that started it all! Having done seminars for the FBI, DEA, Special Forces as well as police departments domestic and abroad, Randy Hare’s revolutionary methods for training substance (drug, explosives, accelerants, biologicals) detector dogs is thought provoking and cutting-edge. It begins with a critical analysis and review of conventional detector dog training methods, and then presents the core ideas of the Hare Method:
Part One: A critical look at canine substance detection training methods.
A: The problem of extraneous cues.
B: The problem of the handler as “teacher”.
C: The problem of “separateness” of target and reward.
D: The “band-aid”- handler skill.
Part Two: The cardinal features of The Hare Method
A: The dog educates himself.
B: The handler is not the teacher.
C: The dog learns what not to pay attention to.
D: The target and reward are not the same.
The balance of the video is devoted to a step-by-step guide to Randy’s methods for using his invention, the Hare Detection Training box, to achieve the detector dog trainer’s first three objectives:
