Imprint Your Detection Dog in 15 Days – A Step-by-Step Workbook
This step-by-step workbook takes the dog and handler through easy-to-follow, positive reinforcement-based training protocols resulting in an imprinted dog. The workbook is written in plain English without a heavy science-based bias; this workbook is designed for beginner and experienced trainers alike. The reward-based lesson plans utilize treats/toys and praise and can be followed by the dog and handler without needing an assistant.
The workbook provides detailed information regarding the storage and handling of target odors, selection of rewards, selection of the target, response (alert) training, and imprinting of the target. The system uses a clicker and KONG target odor but is flexible enough to use any marker you wish and replace the KONG pieces with target odor immediately. Whether you wish to imprint your dog for field surveys such as conservation, Human Remains, competition nose work, or pet dog enrichment, this system is for you!
