VCSi OKLAHOMA DIVISION AND THE CANADIAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE WILL BE OFFERING A 4 DAY K-9 TRACKING WORKSHOP IN EL RENO, OK, MAY 6TH – 9TH, 2013

Written by shaun on . Posted in Events

A canine team that is proficient in tracking is a canine team that will consistently make Apprehensions. Most canine teams respond to more calls which require the team to perform tracks more than any other type of call. It is found that most canine teams receive less training in this function than any other function.

This workshop will better prepare the canine teams for tracking situations. The tracking workshop is designed to teach a solid foundation for both the experienced and inexperienced canine teams.

The workshop will allow one on one training with canine teams needing instruction in problem solving. The workshop will expose all canine teams to numerous surfaces and environments.

This class is accredited by Oklahoma CLEET for 32 hours of continuing education.

Areas covered in this workshop will be, but are not limited to:

-Perimeters
