Today, Stacy, Robin, and Crystal reflect on their top takeaways from attending a three-day cadaver dog seminar held at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, a 1,000 acre urban training facility located near Butlerville, Indiana—affectionately referred to by the K9 community as “dog training Disneyland."
Listen in as our hosts paint a picture through their three distinct lenses of participation of the inspiring environment they shared and the value of being surrounded by a like-minded community of K9 professionals throughout the three-day seminar which included sixty handlers, six instructors, seven assistants and two helpers.
