what?

We will be offering several different levels of Buried, Interior and Exterior searches. This is a non-sanctioned event, so anyone at any level is welcome to enter! Participants are expected to be knowledgable about how searches work, and dogs have experienced with at least odor recognition. Use this as practice in a trial environment! We will be offering 1st place prizes in each element & level within that element. 

where?

This event will be at KraftyK9 Dog Sports in Houston, TX! Indoor, climate controlled crating space will be available. You are also welcome to crate out of your car. The facility offers a little shop, full size kitchen with microwave & fridge, and plenty of coffee/tea and bottled water! 

who?

Teams of all skill levels are invited to join in, making this event a fantastic test and training experience for participants at any stage of their journey. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, everyone is welcome! The search will be overseen by a judge, ensuring a fair evaluation, and a timer will be in place to track the progress of each participant. It's an inclusive opportunity for dog enthusiasts to enhance their skills, regardless of their current level of training. *Dogs should have odor recognition and at least novice search experience*
