6th Annual Search Dog Training Weekend

The 6th Annual Search Dog Training Weekend was held May 20-23, 2005 in Pope County, Arkansas. Base camp for the weekend was at Camp Caudle. The terrain in the area provided opportunities to train on a variety of obstacles. Some of the features around the training area include: Big Piney Creek, Little Piney Creek, Illinois Bayou, numerous other small creeks and streams, Ozark National Forest, Arkansas River, numerous hiking and camping areas, and urban areas.

A total of 29 K-9 teams attended the weekend from Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, and Ohio. Support personnel for the weekend included members of the Pope County Office of Emergency Management and support members from various K-9 Units. Training exercises held during the course of the weekend included scenarios in man-trailing, cadaver work, and air-scenting. Handlers and support personnel also had the opportunity to practice emergency K-9 first aid, navigational exercises, and radio communications.
