DiagNose training center in Neuvy, France
DiagNose canine training and handlers' training is based on the following guidelines:
1. All our trainers have operational experience as well as professional experience.
2. Our trainer trainees ratio is up to 1:5
3. In each (scent) ability, we train the dogs on real materials (such as explosives, drugs, etc’.) if in a certain country a certain material in prohibited to use, we can provide/ advice on what scent simulant to use.
4. Our dogs are trained on positive reinforcement. They work because they are trained to enjoy the work and not because they are afraid not to work.
5. We train dogs as single purpose dogs (we think that a dog should be as excellent as he can be in one mission then mediocre in doing two missions) if a costumer insist on double purpose dog we can train for that as well.
6. We have a standard training procedure for each working discipline. This standard is flexible to client’s demand. Our highly experienced trainers analyze with the costumer he’s professional and operational demands and according to that our CTO and projects manager built a specific training curriculum.
7. For each working discipline in each deployment area we build a specific re-current training.
