Each year the Shreveport Fire Department K9 Search and Rescue Task Force and Ark-La-Tex K9 Search and Rescue Strike Team put on a K9 training seminar at the Scottsville (TX) Camp and Conference Center to further the training and education of individuals and their K9 partners so that those teams can go back to their hometowns and make a positive difference  for their community and region. We bring in top-quality instructors and utilize the most up-to-date techniques and training aides available to maximize what our students get out of their training.

During this week long seminar, students and their K9’s will be challenged by both indoor and outdoor scenarios as well as classroom instruction. There will be a plethora of certification opportunities and we encourage your feedback as to what certifications you may be interested in acquiring.

Students not only come from areas immediately around us to attend but have also come as far away as Colorado, Idaho and Alaska! So if you are new to the search and rescue field or are a seasoned veteran, we invite you to read more about our seminar below and fill out an application to attend our next one. We guarantee a fun and challenging experience.
