SAR Workshop for Discipline, Live Find, Human Remains

Law Enforcement Workshop for Dual Purpose, Odor Detection – Specify Odor and Apprehension Canines.


Scenarios will focus on:

Rope Ops: Raise handler and K9 from ground level to a 6 story ascent and transport via a high line to the adjacent building for an immediate search.

Water: Boat ops in a “flooded village with rooftop trap door search access, partially submerged vehicles, and underwater obstacles such as mailboxes, etc.

LARGE HR SOURCES ( handler option) (including large and small sources) will be utilized to optimize training acclimation for LE and Live Find k9s as well as multiple scenarios for career HR dogs.

Subterranean Cave Complex: enables the ultimate training opportunity for (if desired) zero to low visibility sight in an underground environment. Tunnels provide an excellent opportunity to maneuver tight spaces and develop the ability to navigate a challenging environment.

*Note: these scenarios are adaptable to handler desire and input. Suitable for advanced or beginner canines and scenarios can be adjusted accordingly.

Collapsed parking garage: multistory structure with numerous vehicles to simulate an earthquake, tornado, bombing, terrorist attack, etc

Market Place: a favorite of Law Enforcement SIMS rounds ammunition will be used to provide the most realistic training environment possible. This search area is a multi-dwelling complex.

***Also of special interest to LE:
You and your K9 can participate in Human Remain scenarios such as a mass casualty incident with a concealed suspect ( decoy) that needs to be extracted from the search scene.

Day ops: Workshop hours are 0900-1600.

Night ops training is offered from 18:00-21:00.
