Midwest K-9 Emergency Response Team
St. Charles, IL
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE/ Work History
TECHNICAL TRAINING: Trained under Ellen Ponall who has had over 30 years of running Blood Hounds for Law Enforcement. With Ellen’s help and using the Kocher Method has allowed to turn the reliability of my dogs to be very useful in the cases we work. The component examples illustrated in his book has also allowed my team to become very consistent and proficient.
“Using the Kocher Method has proven to bring dogs and handlers to the next level. It’s awesome to see the light in the brain of those handlers turn on when they see how easy this can be! If you go to one of his seminars please take the time to read his book. Use it to help you reinforce a solid foundation as a working dog team. Working with Kevin Kocher in seminars has helped me to become a better trainer over the years. The K9 SAR and Law Enforcement K9 Handling is extremely important to our communities, so train like someone’s life depends on it, because it does!”
