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 host a seminar in your area? Hosting a seminar is easy. You elect to be the hosting agency, 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.
Seminars that are “open” for anyone to attend are $550 per dog team. Attendees wanting to observe, no dog, are welcome for $100/day.
What is a “closed” registration? This is a seminar that is hosted by an agency that wants to pay one price, and fill the seminar with selected attendees. The price will vary based on number of attendees, location of the seminar, and selected dates.
