“I first met Kevin in the late ‘80’s. The first time I met him, I knew he was a great K9 handler – he had such a good rapport with his K9’s, and I wanted that! I was fortunate to get to train with him periodically and saw how he was able to really motivate his dogs to work by using positive training methods. Watching and learning from Kevin helped me become a better handler and instructor. Seeing a dog working eagerly until the subject has been found, is the real testimonial to the Kocher Method”
