The F.O.R.D. Process
How is our Detection Dog training different from others? These are our training principles, the base of everything we do. Our training is different because we have clear goals for every dog to help them succeed.
We want our mission to be clear that when you come to Ford K9, this is what you're getting.
Odor recognition & Understanding.
We teach the importance of odor recognition to target odor in all kinds of circumstances.
We also educate on odor & how it moves, how to properly store your training aids, & how to read your dog when they are working on odor.
Reliability & Readiness.
Following our training and education program ensures that you and your dog are a reliable team, and you can have confidence when working your dog.
You will also be ready to face whatever situation you are put in with confidence.
Following all of these principals will ensure that you and your dog excel in any detection discipline that you choose to pursue whether that's narcotics, explosives, cadaver, electronics... you name it and we can teach it.
