The TacDogs seminar are designed for 3 days, 24 training hours. Day 1, is the lecture and presentation of the program, possibly an evaluation of the attending dog teams, and field training over the beginning of the program. Day 2, is training in a building and/or field over the program. Day 3, is on a range with live fire implementing the learned skills.
You can attend an existing scheduled seminar or host one in your area. All seminars are open to law enforcement, military, and emergency responders that would benefit from the training, with or without a dog. Credentials or verification required.
How do you attend an existing seminar? Seminars have “open” or “closed” registration. “Open” means that anyone can attend at $550 per dog team, or $100 per day for attendees wanting to observe, without a dog. “Closed” means that the host of the seminar (agency or business) has paid one price for the seminar so they can fill the seminar with the attendees they want. Only the “open” seminars are listed on the website. Registration and payment for “open” seminars are done through this website. Registration for “closed” seminar is done through your host.
Don’t see a seminar in your area and want to host one, “open” or closed”? Hosting a seminar is easy, and I’ll walk you through it. All you have to do is elect to be the hosting agency or business, make sure venues for each day are secured, establish a host hotel if necessary, and supply as few basic equipment needs. The benefit? The host can invite attendees to Day 1 for free. The host will also be asked to help circulate the word to get dog teams to register. There are minimum/maximum requirements for the number of attending dog teams to hold a seminar.
