I have been attending Canine protection training with my German Shepherds for the last four years and have labored through books by great authors such as Bruce Fogel, Steve Lindsey and Captain Von Stephanitz.
Recently I attended a remote collar and protection dog workshop conducted by Kris Kotsopoulos of Von Forell Kennels and I have to admit I was not a big fan of remote collars, until now. While I did my best to find any kind of suffering in the dogs, I saw dogs having the most fun doing the job they are being trained to do. Positive results are tangible and far reaching. My male German Shepherd was to be put to sleep as he was considered dangerous and untrainable, I took him on and took him to the seminar, in just two days I saw a positive change in the dog and with ongoing attention as taught by Kris he will get better.
With a straight forward no nonsense dialogue married up with video, sometimes hilarious interactions with class members and real life demonstrations with the dogs themselves. The remote training seminar was thorough, dynamic and left all of us on a high and with renewed focus. I also purchased Kris’s new dog tracking book called “How To Achieve Precision Tracking With Your Dog” and discovered a wealth of straight forward, effective methods that GET RESULTS. Kris has redefined and simplified the term K.I.S.S.,” keep it simple stupid”, to just “keep it simple”.
My only question is, When is the next seminar?
