Individual & Group Seminars

All of our seminars are provided for individuals, groups or organizations, and are arranged to provide instructions in both classroom and field. We provide the written information and outline to aid you in training your dog in the discipline being presented. Owners/handlers are responsible for the individual equipment required to complete their training.

Each individual and their dog will be evaluated during the seminar. Suggestions are presented in an effort to aid you in training your dog and becoming a more informed handler. Each individual and dog will be presented with a certificate of training indicating their attendance and the number of credited hours accrued during the course. After a seminar presentation, we make ourselves available to you for questions concerning any problems you may encounter.
