Burn Workshop

2nd Canine: Each working spot is the same price, for those wishing to bring a second canine to run through the entire seminar. However, you may bring multiple canines and rotate which dog you use depending on training scenario. This is an option, but not encouraged. We encourage one dog, so that teams can get the full benefits of working a dog through this type of workshop. 

Training: We will have access to multiple training locations including 2 burn buildings, confined space rescue area, burn vehicles, trash dump and small rubble pile. Multiple potential training scenarios and classroom activities for beginners to advanced teams. Instructors will cater training to individual team's needs. Approx. 20+ hrs of instruction. Dog's should have a trained final response. Instructor ratio is 5:1. Schedule & Agenda will be emailed as we nail down more details.

June 7 - 9th, 2024
