Mountain Lodge & Camping: The lodge and primitive camping access are available within walking distance of the bunk houses, training areas, parking, etc... They will be at your own expense and arrangements should be made through Ski Sawmill Family Resort. The lodge does not allow pets! Additional pet friendly rooms available down the road at Inn 287 (570-353-7471). Their hours are Wed-Thurs 3-10pm, Fri-Sat 11am-Midnight and Sun 11am-10pm. Most rooms include two full size beds. Nothing fancy, but they are clean and be aware they are small rooms and may not have room for crates.

Canines: No kennels will be provided for dogs in attendance. Please bring your own crates for containment. All handlers are responsible for their own canines needs and his/her actions and behaviors during the seminar. Dogs must be under control at all times when not working during seminar. Temperatures may swing this time of year. Be prepared for your dogs comfort in vehicles.

2nd Canine: All canines require registration. You can opt out of bunkhouse lodging for your second registration and request a combined payment. You will have to register both canines into the same level group and discipline.

Training: We will have access to multiple training locations including; ski slopes, open fields, woodlands, building searches, a 10 acre pond, a grass air strip and 75,000 acres of state game lands. Multiple potential training scenarios for beginners to advanced teams. Instructors will cater training to individual teams needs. Schedule & Agenda will be emailed as we nail down more details.                        For Air Scent - Confused by what Training Level your K9 should be in? - Click Here
