Training

SherlcokK9SearchOK maintains a rigid training schedule with weekly exercises that cover all the disciplines of our searching strategy – trailing, area, live find, recovery, and scent discrimination live find. Our training officer schedules and plans each session in an effort to meet every forseeable search scenario – building, wilderness, buried, elevated, car search, etc. Certifications are part of the requirements for our group and those are maintained yearly both for our dogs and their handlers. Together with quarterly meetings and in-house training seminars, we accumulate hundreds of hours honing our skillset toward the goal that we will be ready for any search where we are asked to serve.
