5 years ago when I started working with dogs, I went to a school where they taught us to follow the dogs. We were just harnessing the dog then told them to work. At the end point we just give the dog its reward without saying anything.
Our dogs were not focusing on their work and they were losing interest, they needed motivation and we were trying to find something that will up the game for out dogs.
3 years later, in 2018, everything changes when we got help from Jackie, receiving new training, introducing Kocher Method, and that is when I started to understand dog training.
The Method changed us a lot because our training had direction such as having a lot of components and teaching us the Two parts of Tree. Now we also know how to start properly, we understand how to train components, understand how important Intensities are and the importance of the right reward and the party at the end.
Since then my dog is back in the game!
We thank Kevin Kocher for his Method and I thank Jackie for being with us always on the ground to make sure we understand and use the Method very well.
