This class is based on the research Cameron Ford has conducted with Duke University. This class is for everyone, if you are a

professional looking to enhance how you select dogs or a Nose/Scent work handler and trainer learning cognition testing enhances your knowledge about the dog in front of you. These Cognition tests (Brain Games) help you learn crucial information such as, is you dog strong in memory, is the dog a problem solver, how quick does it make inferences? Additional things these tests show are, does the dog easy follow gestural communication and what is your dogs laterality. If you are a Law Enforcement Agency, Search and Rescue K9 or Security Firm, these tests help you select a better more trainable dog. In conjunction with the normal K9 selection and evaluation steps agencies use, adding these K9 Brain games to your evaluation raises the percentage of dogs successfully picked to be working K9’s. Using these tests have proven to increase selection percentages of the right dogs for your program and it has also proven to reduce training time needed to get dogs ready and on the road. If you do Nose/Scent work, the information from these games help you understand your dog better and how to set up training sessions that get the most out of your dog. Just knowing if your dog is right or left brain dominant can make a big difference on how you search an area. This will be a three day seminar where I cover the information to help you learn and apply these tests and get to know your dog better or help you find a better dog for working and detection.
