On Target- Training Substance Detector Dogs: Detection 1
Randy Hare

Detection 1

This practical and thought-provoking video introduces Randy Hare’s revolutionary methods for training substance (drug, explosives, accelerants, biologicals) detector dogs. It begins with a critical analysis and review of conventional detector dog training methods, and then presents the core ideas of the Hare Method:

The handler is not the teacher, the dog teaches himself:
• The dog is not just taught what odors and stimuli to respond to; he is also explicitly taught what NOT to respond to.
• The dog is taught to ignore primary reward (ball) odors and stimuli unless they are encountered in conjunction with target odor.

The balance of the video is devoted to a step-by-step guide to Randy’s methods for using his invention, the Hare Detection Training box, to achieve the detector dog trainer’s first three objectives:
1) Select a good detector dog prospect.
2) Teach target odor-reward association.
3) Condition the final response.
