Elite Trial Prep is for teams preparing for NACSW Elite trials (or their equivalent in other venues). Dogs and handlers will work on and off leash searching containers, interiors, vehicles, and exteriors. The focus of this class is preparing teams for competition. Threshold work, leash handling, time pressure, distractions, building stamina, blank searches and a thorough knowledge of trial rules are just some of the things that will be covered in this class. This class will likely travel in order to search as many unique Elite-type areas as possible. Time will be spent observing other teams and discussing each search. All dogs work alone with their handler and are required to be crated or confined in their vehicle (weather depending).
