This will be a working seminar so bring your dog and all your equipment.
You will need all your K9 gear to include long lines, leashes, muzzles, etc.
To be cost effective, WSPCA trainers interested in attending this seminar must contact Aaron Baker at Abaker@co.kitsap.wa.us to confirm your spot in the seminar as a trainer. Otherwise you must attend as a working K9 team and pay the seminar fee. Trainers invited by the Host agency will be paired 2 to room. Trainers who bring a dog are responsible for the non-refundable pet fee. 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).
Quarries wishing to attend this seminar must contact Aaron Baker at Abaker@co.kitsap.wa.us 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. Quarry experience is not required but we strongly encourage those who endeavor to be a handler and train dogs to attend.
The quarries working 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 wit h 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 yo u (or your agency).
The hotel is dog friendly. When registering, use “Washington State Police Canine Association or WSPCA Room Block” to get our discounted rate of $131.84 + tax. Deadline to register and receive this rate is 8-30-19.
