K9 Challenge Event

Have you been looking for an opportunity to challenge yourself and your k9 partner? Do you want to get out of the “usual routine” with your training drills?  Join us at Camp Atterbury, Indiana to push the limits of your training!  This seminar is designed for intermediate to advancedArea Search teams and Disaster dog teams (both live and HRD) . This is a unique training event, in that there will be less ‘instruction’ and a greater focus on scenarios and challenges for the K9/handler team. Your obedience, agility, directability, search skills and ability to work as a team will all be tested during this event. There will also be  team debriefing with instructors and participants.  This event is open to 10 dog/handler teams.  K9s must have a reliable trained final response and ideally will also have experience working real searches.  

Topics Covered:

  • Unique training scenarios

  • Double blind searches

  • "Skills" challenges

  • Team exercises/search problems
