K9 Power Wake Training Course


SKU: OTA-TC-MAC07 Categories: ,



K9 Power Wake training is unique in that we build confidence and independence, providing a different approach to search training. K9s will be taught to respond to a target odor and lead the handler to the source with a correct final response. The person carrying the object of interest is never directly confronted by the dog. Through this training, handlers are taught to trust the K9s finely-tuned sense of smell. Independence is developed through the handlers lack of direct input towards detection.

This course and corresponding training systems have been specifically designed to introduce new methods of training. Whereas traditional detector dogs are handler-led, K9 Power Wake training will allow handlers to walk behind their dogs with little or no interference. Using this system, K9PW dogs will move through the crowd or suspect area and check the air for normal air patterns. Once a targeted odor has been detected, the K9 will lead the handler to the suspect odor and indicate a change of behavior.
