K9 Nose Work Fun Search Day!

SATURDAY, SEPT. 20th, 2014

Registration will open soon...

Heflin, AL

This event is for all Nose Work enthusiasts and those interested in finding out more about this ultra-fun dog activity!

Dogs can be on primary reward (food or toy only!) or on target odors. If your dog is on primary only, you and your dog will search at the end of the running order. If your dog is not training in Nose Work yet, you can register as an AUDITOR or as a HELPER and have fun so you can see what this crazy nose work thing is all about!  See schedule below to see what time Helpers must arrive. Read more about K9 Nose Work®.

We will have several search areas with either 1 or 2 hides each that are appropriate for all levels and that can be run blind with help or as known hides. Search areas will be birch only (or food only if still on primary only), however, you may also request at the beginning of your search to have anise and/or clove added.  All hides will be source-able to the dogs - which is great practice for dogs at all levels!

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION - Register by Friday, August 22nd at 6:00 p.m. Central Standard Time

If all Fun Search Day Handler/Dog Team spots are FULL when you submit your Regular Handler/Dog Team registration and payment, you will be notified and given the option to attend as an Auditor or Helper without a dog.  A refund will be issued for the difference or for the full amount if you decide not to attend.

If you wish to be considered for a Helper spot, there is a space to indicate that on your registration form.  Helpers can register up to two dogs and can be assigned as Element Leads, Running Order Supervisor, Timers, Videographers, Registration Table Personnel, or Gate Stewards - no prior experience necessary, we will train you for any role for which you may be assigned. :)  Helpers arrive at 8:00 a.m. Central Time (9:00 a.m. Eastern Time) and must commit to stay for the entire day, otherwise can register as an Auditor or Regular Handler/Dog Team.  Please pay the full registration price for a Regular Handler/Dog(s) Team (choose number of dogs you are entering) and if you are chosen as a Helper (we'll accept requests to be Helpers until we have enough), you will be issued a $10 refund for the first dog and $5 for a second dog. This refund will be issued after you complete your registration and are chosen as a Helper.

Videotaping and photography is only allowed for your own dogs’ runs.  You may bring a video camera and ask someone to tape your runs for you.  If you bring a friend to videotape your runs, that person will need to register and pre-pay as an Auditor for the Day.
