Welcome to Guinea Pig Camp! So you like detection work and agility tricks, you are fascinated by the Hero Rats detecting landmines and you'd like to learn some tricks that could make you a better dog trainer. I'm not going to teach you to train a police detection dog or a landmine-detecting rat, that is reserved for the professionals in those areas, but I will instruct you how to train a guinea pig to detect tobacco and gunpowder, and to perform agility tricks. Why should dog trainers train guinea pigs? Training dogs is easy compared to training other species due to the special relationship between humans and dogs. Dogs tend to overlook most of our mistakes and give us a second chance. Animals that don’t have such a close relationship with humans are far less forgiving so it is a high priority to be precise, to plan your training, to develop your observation skills and to have a plan B available. Training guinea pigs will help make you a better, more observant dog trainer; more attentive to detail and more receptive to the feedback your dog gives you. for more information on Guinea Pig Camp go here: Prerequisite: Read “The 20 Principles All Animal Trainers Must Know” which can be read for free by following the link below:
