Area Search (Live/HRD) Scenarios Challenge
April 13-15, 2018
We will be using a 230 acre residential Christian Camp as the base for this scenario challenge training, which means that all lodging and meals are on-site and included in the registration fee.
Ready to test your skills as a team and push your training to the next level? This is the seminar for you and your K9 partner. We will be utilizing over 220 acres of a rural residential camp which will allow us to have both day and nighttime exercises focusing on realistic search scenarios for both live and HRD dogs. The terrain is varied and includes prairie grass fields, agricultural fields, and thickly wooded areas. All lodging and meals are provided on site at the camp.
This seminar is designed for intermediate to advanced Area Search teams (both live and HRD).
This is a unique training event, in that there will be less ‘instruction’ and a greater focus on scenarios and challenges for the K9/handler team. There will also be sufficient time for team debriefing with instructors and participants to work through the various scenarios and activities.
- Effective search strategy
- Nighttime search exercises/strategies
- Training and working through unique and challenging distractions
- Environmental acclimation to various challenging conditions
