INBTI is a professional organization with experienced and knowledgeable instructors focused on enhancing the skills and abilities of Law Enforcement and Search & Rescue handlers and their K9s through The Kocher Method.

Training with TKM develops K9s with intense focus and dedication to the trail by building a solid foundation and continually strengthening that foundation through intensity trails and component training. 

Using TKM has made such an incredible difference with our bloodhounds that I am sure you will love the changes you see when following the method!

The Kocher Method - So Simple yet SO POWERFUL!
