Trailing/HRD and Urban Area Search Clinic

Sept. 14-18 - Estes Park, CO

SARDUS is hosting a clinic focusing on trailing, HRD, and urban area search. Urban area search is utilizing wilderness area search dogs to search on-lead in an urban area. We will cover training guidelines and practice the skills necessary for dog teams to eventually complete 24-hour old urban trails with the right preparation and training.

Expand your knowledge and training opportunities for human-remains detection with some of the most experienced instructors in the area. There will be opportunities to test for certification as well. Class size is limited to 15 participants.  Currently we are holding these dates for the clinic but will be waiting on finalizing details once we get closer to dates.

New Evaluators

These clinics allow SARDUS to work with new evaluators. We are intentionally moving very slow with the expansion of our evaluator pool, so we can maintain the quality and consistency that we expect with our certifications.

Evaluators-in-training work with our experienced evaluators setting up and observing how each test is evaluated. This is a very work-intensive process, but our results are tests that are set up and evaluated the same across the country. If you are interested in becoming a SARDUS evaluator, please apply by contacting us. We have very limited space.
