This will be a working seminar so bring your dog and all your equipment.

Equipment:

You will need all your K9 gear to include long lines, leashes, muzzles, safety glasses, inert guns if available, uniform attire etc.

Meetings:

  • The Trainers/E-Board meeting is at 1700 hrs. on 5-5-19
  • The General Membership meeting will be at 0830 hrs. on 5-6-19
  • Short Trainers/E-Board meeting at 1800 hrs. on 5-7-19
  • There will be short briefings prior to the start of each training day to cover training philosophies and expectations for the exercises.

Training:

  • Generalist/Patrol Scenarios: Generalist teams will be training in locations in Clark County and the City of Camas. The focus for generalist teams will be scenario-based training throughout the seminar. Plan to be challenged as a team as well as be observers of others to gain further insight on how others approach problems.
  • Explosive & Narcotic Scenarios: Training locations will be in Clark County to include vehicles, rooms, office areas, buses or semi’s, area searches, and parcels.
  • Trainers: To be cost effective, WSPCA trainers interested in attending this seminar must contact Seth Brannan at seth.brannan@clark.wa.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. 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).
  • Quarry: Quarries wishing to attend this seminar must contact Ryan Starbuck at ryan.starbuck@cityofvancouver.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 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 be a non-refundable pet fee of $50/night for those wishing to house their dog in the room. When registering, use “WSPCA Room Block” to get our discounted rate of $142.00 + tax (this rate does not include the pet deposit listed above if housing the canine in your room). Deadline to register and receive this rate is 4-15-19.
