K911 Search & Rescue Dog Training
To Serve & Protect
What would you do if your working dog was injured? Learn emergency life support to provide immediate care for your injured dog. Courses taught by experienced veterinarians—with dogs present—will teach you the critical first steps.
Next Course: Coming Soon
Announcing a new course format for the upcoming "K911: Emergency Life Support for the Search and Rescue Dog" Conference!
This new structure is in response to the suggestions from past attendees, the shrinking budgets of organizations and individuals for continuing education, and the overall expense of the conference.
We have made K911 a 1-day, all inclusive event. Registration will be limited to the first 24 people, and lectures will run from 8:30 - 2:30 pm. The skills lab will be tailored for all registrants and will begin immediately following the lectures, running from 2:30 - 5:30. The event will take place entirely at West Michigan Regional Laboratory, and still include continental breakfast, hot lunch buffet, lecture outlines and handouts. The cost will be $200 per person.
The same skilled instructors from Michigan State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine will be with us for the day, but in a more intimate learning environment that will provide greater opportunity for interaction and networking with the instructors and other participants.
You will experience the same quality conference as in previous years, but at a price and schedule that is more within reach during these tight economic times.
Continuing Education Credits offered through Michigan State University and American Medical Response. MCOLES funding approved.
