Night Urban Trails- Tracking/Traiiling Seminar

Two Dates

March 20, 21, & 22, 2020- Full

July31, August 1, &2, 2020- 3 slots left

Being comfortable working our dogs through the urban landscape in the middle of the night. Many of your callouts will come in the middle of the night, how often do you train in the wee hours of the night. This is my favorite time to search, and the dogs can thrive in these quieter hours.  This seminar will start on Friday night at 7pm, and we will work through the night, ending about three am Saturday.  We will then meet up again at 7pm Saturday night.  We will be working each K9 on longer trails through the urban landscape. Handlers will be asked to help flank and navigate as other teams work, as well as working their dogs. The trails will be 4-12 hours old. Your team should have experience working tracks aged up to 12 hours, and lengths up to 1 mile.  There are only four slots open for this seminar  to give teams time to work these larger problems. I believe this will be a great adventure for all that take part.
