Emphasis will be placed on actual fieldwork with day and night training. Hounds will be worked in a primarily wilderness area, however urban areas are available. A questionnaire for each handler is attached to determine classes and instructors. Seminar guidelines will be adhered to exclusively. All handlers that have not attended the Scent Class should arrive by 8:00am on Sunday to check-in. The Scent Class will begin at 9:00am. Handlers who are not attending the Scent Class should arrive prior to 4:00pm on Sunday in order to confirm their attendance and be assigned to a group.
