Demonstrations and Seminars

We are pleased to offer demonstrations of obedience, tracking, or protection (including our K-9’s) to interested parties.  In the past we have done demos for many schools, groups, and summer camps.  We also offer seminars for kids on how to be safe around dogs, whether the dog is their own dog, a friend’s dog, or a stray encountered on the street.


If you are interested in having a free demo at your facility, please call us at (570) 489-2118 for arrangements.
