As member of different SAR organizations I have participated in numerous searches as both as a flanker and K-9 Handler.
I was first introduced to The Kocher Method in June 2011. At first I did not think much of the Kocher Method as it was too simplistic. Since then my attitude toward the TKM has completely changed.
Now I am a firm believer that by keeping it simple using the TKM is the best way to develope a strong confident dog. Using the principles outlined in the TKM a handler can take simple steps to train his/her K-9 to overcome complex issues.
