Join the Conservation Dogs Collective team for a full-day seminar that covers all things conservation detection dogs. You’ll learn about the what and why behind utilizing trained Finder-Keeper (dog-handler) teams to advance conservation efforts, study the body language of dogs when they’re sniffing for their target odor, and get live observation experience watching the CDCI Canine Finders doing scent detection tasks on the Wolf Park property. We’ll also discuss the “nitty gritty”/business side of this industry, ethics and welfare considerations for projects, and variables to ensure project success. This seminar is appropriate for learners with varying experiences living with and working alongside dogs, those who are interested in becoming a conservation dog handler, as well as professionals curious about the potential use of conservation dogs for their projects. Registered attendees will be sent CDCI’s “What’s a Conservation Dog?” video recording a week or two before the seminar – we kindly ask everyone to view this prior to our in-person gathering.
