The trainer line-up has over 150 years of combined Law Enforcement K-9 Training and working experience.  This seminar will benefit both K9 Handlers and K9 Trainers.

This event will include a free flow training curriculum with various areas of scenario based training occurring both day and night.  Knowledgeable K9 trainers will be providing valuable feedback and problem solving for all teams that attend this event
