MOCK ORTs & MOCK TRIALS
These events are co-hosted by Georgia Edwards MD, CNWI and Miriam Rose, CNWI working together as NOSEWORK CENTRAL. Our judges are working scent-detection dog handlers/trainers from law enforcement, the military, and private contractors. Mock events are held to polish the skills of the dog-handler team prior to competition and are planned to simulate a real trial in terms of the search area size, complexity of hides, and time alloted for the searches. Judges provide an educational de-briefing following completion of the mock trial as well as coaching each individual team during their search, if necessary. Every dog will be successful in his searches to optimize his mock trial experience, just as in a real trial.
UPCOMING MOCK TRIAL: Saturday, January 21, 2017 at the Kindred, 443 Cameron Road, Sequim WA. This will be a two class, 2 game intermediate level mock trial held under the rules of US Canine Scent Sports, $40 per dog, entries close on Thursday January 19, 2017. Contact Georgia at firstname.lastname@example.org to enter.
