2017 Minnesota NAPWDA Search & Rescue Workshop

Each September, CLSAR hosts the MN NAPWDA Search and Rescue Workshop.  This 4-day event is held at Camp Ripley, a 55,000-acre Military Reservation which allows multiple training venues, free lodging, and meals on-site.  The only workshop of its kind in Minnesota, we have K-9 handlers from across the Upper Midwest (and beyond!) attending each year.

The MN NAPWDA SAR Workshop offers three different K-9 Search and Rescue disciplines:  Area Search, Tracking, and Human Remains Detection.  Due to the constraints of setting up HRD (Cadaver) tests, one handler can only test one dog for HRD certification.  Training is provided by NAPWDA Trainers, and K-9 teams can request NAPWDA certification testing from the Master Trainers during the week as well.

For more information, visit www.napwda.com.
