SARDOC was pleased to invite K.T. Irwin down from Cody, Wyoming to put on a Scenarios Seminar for several of our dog handlers. K.T. and her colleagues, Deb Hurlburt and Mel Gothard, specialize in Scenarios Workshops where the trainings mimic real life cases. Handlers all worked each case blind. Two to three scenarios were set up each day. Between working missing person cases, old and recent “murder” scenes, vapor wake situations, and more, teams went home exhausted and well-educated after three days in the field.
On top of this, Dr. Weathermon from the University of Wyoming gave an amazing presentation about human vs. animal bones to help further everyone’s awareness in the field. Dr. Weathermon is an expert in this area and has been on many cases during his long career.
SARDOC is very grateful to Northwest K9 and Dr. Weathermon for sharing their time and knowledge with us.
