a great training/vacation event for you & your dog (9/11-9/16)
AMPWDA 2011 International Fall Seminar - Mantrailing, Mantracking, Human Remains Detection (HRD) & MORE!
Our seminars not only offer the best training from some of the best in the business (http://www.ampwda.com/instructors.html),
but also a fun, relaxing retreat for both you and your K9 partner. Our all inclusive price covers: comfortable, modern lodging in a beautiful parklike setting (your K9 stays in the room with you), 3 delicious meals a day, all training materials, photo CD of the weeks activities, souvenir T-shirt and much more!
For Mantrailing, we offer three skill level options:
Our Advanced Mantrailing Course far exceeds any Search & Rescue or Law Enforcement Standards. The training is very physically challenging for both handler and K9. It is not for the faint of heart. The trails will range from 2 to 6 miles in length and will cover rough terrain through rugged country. Each trail will be scenario-based with hazards and obstacles along the way. Our Master Trainers have consistently trained on these type trails for over 20 years each. If you have what it takes (physically and mentally) and think you and your K-9 can endure this intense real-life training, then sign up for the ultimate mantrailing experience. Certifications are available, as long as the Standards are met. See our Standards at http://www.ampwda.com/standards.html.
Our Basic and Intermediate Mantrailing Courses cover all the basics, including: Scent Theory, Mantrailing (back to basics), Mantracking, Reading Your Dog and more. Trails range from puppy trails to longer, more complicated intermediate trails. These courses are beneficial for the very beginners, as well as the seasoned mantrailer. Certifications are available, as long as the Standards are met. See our Standards at http://www.ampwda.com/standards.html.
Our Human Remains Detection (HRD) Course offers training for both Land and Water. This course is limited to Search and Rescue personnel who are dedicated to applying themselves and working toward a National Certification. See our Standards at http://www.ampwda.com/standards.html.
Certification opportunities will be available for Man Trailing, Man Tracking, HRD - Land and HRD - Water.
