High Risk Deployment Seminars

HRD Police K9 offers intensive workshops and seminars focusing on realistic, scenario based K-9 training. These seminars are designed to challenge both K-9 and handler. Your K-9 teams will be given no-nonsense instruction, valuable feedback, and guidance on how to implement scenario based training into your training program. 

The hosting department gets one free Working Spot, and all hosting department K-9 Supervisors, and Administration receive free Audit Spots. We ask the hosting department to secure a variety of training locations — sites such as warehouses, schools, houses, buses, etc. We also ask that hosting departments help us to co-market the event to help fill the remaining working spots.

Each seminar has space for 30 K-9 teams, with a minimum of 15 Working Spots to secure the event.

Seminars should be 3 consecutive days in a row. These seminars are available to all levels of experience — from green dogs to experienced patrol dog handler teams. We scale training exercises based on experience level.

Cost: Working Spot: $500 | Audit: $225 (limited spots available)
