Instructor Bio/testimonial:

Isaac Newton said: “Nature is pleased with simplicity and nature is no dummy”.

The Kocher Method teaches us to not over complicate things. It is magnificent in its simplicity, and in it, there is only truth to be found, leaving us to discover what we can do without. Its simplicity composes the most beautiful symphony between the task at hand, the dog and the handler.

Above all TKM teaches us to humble ourselves… may we continue to be wise and humble in how we apply it.

Thank you Mr Kocher
