Don Blair Detection Seminar
About Don Blair and CIA:
CIA was founded in 1984 by Don Blair as a means to leverage his 30+ years of working K9 experience with a broader community. CIA provides cutting edge training methodologies to working and sport dog handlers that ensure clarity of communication and effective, efficient establishment of required behaviors. Work is grounded in the generation of a foundation that includes:
Creating an optimal environment for K9 learning
Utilizing the techniques of operant conditioning and behavior economics to enforce preferable behaviors and extinguish undesirable responses
Define and enforce handler specific actions and timing
Balance positive learning experiences with effective and appropriate corrections (when and where required)
CIA is dedicated to the delivery of easily understood and applied training protocols that utilize the above criteria. Leveraging the scientific principals that govern learning, CIA is able to effectively define training actions that optimize the ability of the K9 to meet the requirements of the requested task. In addition, CIA possesses expertise in the development of training plans to assure ongoing maintenance of desired behaviors.
