Area Search (Live/HRD) Scenarios Challenge
Feb. 26-28, 2021
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 a variety of locations which will allow for exercises focusing on realistic search scenarios for live find K9s.
This seminar is designed for intermediate to advanced live find area search and HRD teams. Although certification is not required it is encouraged. Scenarios will be primarily double-blind so each team must be at a level where they are ready for these scenarios.
This is a unique training event, in that there will be less ‘instruction’ and a greater focus on scenarios and double-blind 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 some problem-solving in response to scenarios.
- Effective search strategy planning/use of time
- Training and working through unique and challenging distractions
- Environmental acclimation to various challenging conditions
