This is what USCA is offering in trials now, and I *think* also DVG (these are the two main national working dog clubs that hold trials). Like I'd mentioned, this is a lot of the basic work for SAR, but without the commitment of team to be deployed. Some of us are just too old to start a new active career in SAR work, but the exercises and trial work is fun & exciting for anyone wanting to push for something new & exciting to do. I'm going to a 2-day workshop this weekend at our club in AZ to learn more. Hopefully we'll be ready for our prelim level trial in February.
