About this Seminar:

The Hard Surface K-9 Tracking Seminar teaches students how to start their K-9 partners on hard surfaces typically found in urban environments. K-9s will be taught to successfully track through environments that hold little ground disturbance odor and will focus only on human odor.  K-9s will learn solid scent discrimination through this process. The course is an advanced tracking course. It is suitable ONLY for those teams who have completed a basic tracking course. THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER’S COURSE.

This seminar includes approximately four hours of classroom instruction and the remaining time spent in fieldwork. Total hours of the seminar is approximately 24 hours over the 3-day period.

Attendees: All attendees should be in physical condition commensurate with the physical requirements of tracking with your dog.

Dogs: All dogs must have all shots and be current.

Equipment: Each team must have a tracking harness, 15-feet tracking lead, and chain choke collar, water and food bowls. Handlers should dress appropriate for warm weather with comfortable ankle length or greater leather boots.

Vehicles: Each attendee must have a vehicle containing a crate for transporting the dog.

Cost: The cost includes all instruction, classroom training materials, kennels for dogs and three nights lodging for participants.
