TESTIMONIAL:

The Kocher Method is all about motivation, creating dogs that will work in any environment and under any circumstances. In my job as a firefighter I need a solid dog that will work with a very high motivation even in the most challenging situations. I have been training TKM with my Bloodhound since she was three months old and went to a seminar with Kevin Kocher himself. And the result is that have already found a person and have given valuate information on many, many occasions.

PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL:

Throughout all the seminars I have attended with him I can see that people value his passion, his dedication to every student and his willingness to share all his knowledge with everyone interested in learning. He truly believes in the method and it shows!
