Nov. 5-7, 2021
Little Galilee Christian Camp
Ready to continue to refine your skills as a team and work in some challenging terrain? This is the seminar for you and your K9 partner. We will be utilizing a 228 acre camp with a variety of challenging terrain and training opportunities.
This seminar is designed for all levels of live find Area Search teams. We will spend time on foundational drills to refine and solidify the trained final response, motivational drills, and increase reward engagement. We will also structure appropriate scenarios to test your skills as a team.
This is a full spectrum training event. No matter your skill level, foundational drills will improve your proficiency and can be super fun for your dog. Combining those with appropriate scenarios to test your teamwork is the key to achieving full proficiency. There will be sufficient time for team debriefing with instructors and for various problem-solving drills as needed. This will be limited to a small number of working spots to ensure plenty of time with the instructors.
