Handlers must be available the evening before each seminar start day for a 'meet and greet' with Kevin. The two day seminar will focus on the practical skills so it is important to meet Kevin the evening before to ask questions and for him to get to know you, your dogs mantrailing abilities and any specific goals you have.

Note: this seminar will be faced paced and physically demanding. You do not need to be super fit, however, you will be pushed outside your comfort zone over the two days. Your dogs and your abilities will be tested.

Note: Due to recent and tragic events involving restricted breeds, it may be a requirement of our insurance and venue use, that restricted breeds will need to be muzzled. Please start this training now. We are happy to support you in anyway we can. Any dog with a bite history will also need to be muzzled.
