ABOUT THE SEMINAR
ABOUT THE SEMINAR
As part of our dedication to serving the families and communities of missing persons, we offer our annual Fall Canine Seminar to support our team as well as the greater search and rescue community. The seminar affords teams and canine handlers from across the country an opportunity to train under experts in the field, develop their skills as searchers, utilize the most up-to-date techniques and training aides available and certify as a team with their canines in accordance with national standards.
The 2022 Alpha Search and Recovery Fall Canine Seminar will be November 10-13 with canine certifications on November 10. During this seminar, students and their K9’s will be challenged by both indoor and outdoor scenarios as well as some classroom instruction. The seminar is open to all levels of training, from new to the search and rescue field or a seasoned veteran, we welcome you to join us.
