Learning a systematic search (ON and OFF leash) with Jens Frank June 24-27
Learning a systematic search (ON and OFF leash) with Jens Frank June 24th to 27th 9AM to 5PM
We will train the dog to search systematically on and off leash when being close to tha handler or at a distance. When you sign up for the course you will get access to the SWDI training app (for Android and iPhone) and the progression plans for detections foundations. In order to get the most out of the course it is necessary that your dog has an indication (it doesn’t have to be perfect) on some odour or article type, it doesn’t have to be the operational target odour.
Tracking is one of the most fun, but also most challenging skills to teach a dog. The more time you spend following the progression plan in the app before the actual course, the more advanced tracks we will be able to do when we meet.
About Jens Frank
I have a position as Associate professor at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. In my position at the university, I work as a scientist and also manager of the government ́s large carnivore management dog teams. In addition to being responsible for the program I am also working as a dog handler with the main task to be a resource for regional authorities in high-conflict situations with large carnivores, for example brown bear attacks on humans. I am also one of the founders of the Scandinavian Working Dog Institute (SWDI) where I do operational search for narcotics and explosives and train other instructors and dog handlers from different authorities. I also select and train regular detection and patrol dogs from start to finish as well as dogs for special purposes as camera dogs, attack dogs and remote detection dogs.
