Short video of canine working the automatic training and testing scent wheel in the absence of a trainer.
Recently I had the great pleasure of working in Kenya on a project for my friend Jason Crafter of Invictus K9.
I spent 10 days in Masai Mara working with the Rangers there. I was delivering an anti-poaching detection dog and training the handlers. I will post more about this trip, the great work of the Mara Conservancy and the Rangers there.
I was told this cheetah is a mother raising 5 cubs.
I am experimenting with different formats for sharing training information.
Click here to see the new training article format. This will open a flip book that has four different complimentary explanations of the retriever drill Force to the Pile.
The flip book offers an outline- a video- the transcript of the video with photos captured from the video and then it ends with a more detailed explanation of the drill.
Try it out and let me know what you think
This shows two new formats. the first is a flip book. If you click on the picture of Amber you will be redirected to a flip book that you can view online.
If you click on the link below you can download a pdf and save or print at your pleasure.

Over the course of almost two years working with home built detection training carousels I designed these wheels.
We have them built in Smithsburg and offer them for sale on my Tactical Directional Canine website
Here is a short clip of DD working two wheels, one hot one not.
This was shot using a cell phone camera and not enough light.
However, it is a fun video. The puppy is 8 weeks old the day this ws shot.
Here is an old video of puppy training with scent tubes.
I Hope to begin posting more new content soon.
I found this article in Science Daily

In the first months of life, when babies begin to distinguish sounds that make up language from all the other sounds in the world, they can be trained to more effectively recognize which sounds “might” be language, accelerating the development of the brain maps which are critical to language acquisition and processing, according to new research.
