Simon teaches everything from hard surface tracking to "garbage can" science - inexpensive materials to develop training devices to speed up scent detection training in a budget friendly way. Whether you're a beginner, an advanced trainer and handler, or somewhere in between, he can help you improve your training on any of the wide variety of topics in scent detection.
He has a passion for teaching people, not just training dogs. Through the use of quality plans and operant conditioning, he is empowering trainers to excel.
“My goal is to share the power of operant conditioning with the rest of the training world, and create a much-needed shift in the minds of those responsible for shaping, conditioning, and leading.” – Simon Prins
Simon brings a wealth of experience including the use of technology for specialized projects. To name a few, he has implemented programs for laser-guided dogs, radio controlled dogs, and the use of various sensors and robots with dogs.
Not all seminar topics will be offered. Submitting your interest in a topic will improve the chance that it is offered. Pre-registrants will be contacted first when sign-up for working spots is available.
