TESTIMONIAL:

As a law enforcement officer and INBTI instructor I have had the opportunity to instruct law enforcement agencies and SAR organizations in the Kocher method of man-trailing.  I have instructed in 5 states and 2 European countries. 

Through the course of my career as a K-9 handler, unit supervisor, trainer and INBTI Instructor I have contributed to many successful searches.

In my opinion INBTI and TKM is the most successful and simplest method of training.  I have experienced training in other methods and have found this method to be the simplest and most successful.  Our K-9 unit is now much more capable of tracking in a variety of situations and conditions.  It has worked very well for me and my organization. I teach it and promote it because the methods work.
