Trainers:

To be cost effective, WSPCA trainers interested in attending this seminar must contact Robert Morrow at steven_r_robert_morrow@rl.gov to confirm their spot in the seminar as a trainer. Otherwise you must attend as a working K9 team and pay the seminar fee.

Quarry:

Quarries wishing to attend this seminar must contact Robert Morrow at steven_r_robert_morrow@rl.gov to confirm your spot as a quarry. Again, to be cost effective it is vital that you RSVP to be sure we have a spot for you. Experienced quarry are not required but we strongly encourage those who endeavor to be a handler and train dogs to attend.

The working quarries for all 3-days will be provided per diem from the WSPCA (if from out of town and a hotel stay is required). Quarries will need to room with handlers from the agency they are representing if applicable. If unable to room with a handler the WSPCA will pair you up with another solo quarry. If you would like your own room, the WSPCA will pay for HALF the hotel costs, the other half is up to you (or your agency).

Hotel:

The hotel is cop and dog friendly. There will not be a damage deposit fee for those wishing to house their dog in the room. When registering, use the WSPCA group code “WAPO 0916” to get our discounted rate of $96.00 + tax.
