The following is from Jeff Schettler. He is world renowned in training trailing dogs and their handlers. He is putting on this competition for next November 2019, at his facility, GA K-9, in South Carolina. Should be an awesome experience for all skill levels.
“Mark this date in blood: November 8-10, 2019 1st annual Manhunter Tracking/ Trailing Challenge and competition. If you think you have what it takes, bring your dog and tack and let’s rock and roll. There has never been a competition like this in history and trust me when I tell you the cream will rise to the top in November 2019!
We will have classes by some of the finest tracking trainers on the planet and while that’s going on, we will be challenging the most hard corps handlers running dogs today.
