recently attended my second training seminar at Von Forell run by Kris Kotsopoulos. Being a licenced security guard, this seminar on decoy training is one I am very interested in.
Kris explained in very in-depth detail about the behavior and understanding of dogs and how important this is, for a good decoy to be able to read in the dogs they are working with. This was very heavy going class room work but it gives you the basic tools to understand what is involved when working with security trained dogs.
The theory was followed up with excellent hands on work that reinforced what you have learnt in the class room.
Kris’s knowledge and experience, from a life time of working with many thousands of dogs, together with his easy going, friendly personality really makes the 3 day seminar not only enjoyable but a must for anybody who wants to learn the art of decoy work. I highly recommend Kris and this seminar to everybody who wants to learn or improve their ability as a decoy.
