No. Classes are designed for one handler and one dog for the duration of the seminar.

No. We are limiting crated dogs in the cabin to one per handler. Please use RV, camping or off-site accommodations if you need to travel with multiple dogs.

Dogs in heat may not attend the seminar. Seminar attendees will receive partial refund (refund to exclude food/lodging expenses) to owners with dogs in heat past the refund date. Email us for more information.

No. Classes are designed progressively across the entire week, so you will stay with the same group for the entire seminar. However, if the class is too hard or too easy for you or your dog, we will try and accommodate a class change on the first day. This is not guaranteed.

Volunteers are often needed to help, especially people willing to put in trails and go hide for the trailing and area search dogs. Contact us at Or let us know when you check-in at the seminar and we'll connect you to the appropriate person.

If you know of a company or corporation that may be willing to donate items for our auction or raffle, please let us know. We count on this auction to offset our seminar cost and pay the instructors' travel expenses. It is tradition for attending handlers to bring items to be auctioned, such as bringing local/regional gift baskets, dog items, handler items and outdoor products.

Registration fees will be refunded minus $100 up to three (3) weeks prior to the start of the seminar. After that, there are no refunds for cancellations.
