I started training in K9 SAR in the fall of 2009. I went to many seminars and learned something
at all of them but wasn’t quite able to put it all together. Then I went to a Kevin Kocher seminar.
It changed everything for me. His explanations about why a dog does what it does, when it does,
and how to read a dog amazed me. His method of component training and keeping things simple
all made a lot of sense to me. I credit Kevin with providing me with the clarity that I failed to
find elsewhere. Training the Kocher method has really made a huge positive difference in me
and my dog’s ability to search and provide information.
