Human Scent Discriminate K9 Training November 18-22, 2019
Our comprehensive M77® K9 Training Plan develops fundamental skills in dogs and handlers for human scent discriminate trailing. Handlers are taught to use the standardized processes contained in the plan for training canines to indicate the presence, absence, and path of a targeted person utilizing the scent of the identified individual. Our innovative trailing app gives handlers the ability to measure the success of each exercise in the field from their phone and meets all SWGDOG requirements.
