Are you terrified of food distractors in your search environment? Are you unsure how to handle a search area full of luggage? Are you confused on how to "read" your dog when he is searching containers? This seminar is for you. This one-day seminar will focus on containers for the NW2 and NW3 level dogs. This seminar highlights various types of containers, search patterns and desirable distractors. Handlers will negotiate different search configurations. Dogs should be proficient in at least Birch and Anise. The seminar is limited to 12 working spots, and unlimited auditors. Auditors with dogs at any level will benefit from this seminar. Jacy Kelley, CNWI, is a NACSW Faculty Member and owns Canine Copilots, LLC in Northern Virginia. To register for this seminar, please click on the link below.
