Join us to learn about the latest advances in canine scent detection, and take your scent detection to the next level at the WDDO 15th Annual Conference. There’s only one week left to register for live online seminars on April 8-9, 2021. You can’t beat the price, at $50 for two days of K9 Scent Detection Seminars, presented by industry experts, where you can get answers to your questions. You’ll also get access to recordings after the event.

All levels of experience are welcome. This is an opportunity for detector dog professionals and enthusiasts to recover from the gap in training forced in 2020. This is a fresh chance to review the basics, deepen your knowledge, share best practices, and explore new areas of scent detection research, among a community of peers.

The WDDO conference has been credited with 6 CEUs for CNWI (Canine Nose Work Instructors), and application has been made to IAABC (International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants) for similar standing.

  1. I am working all weekend. Will these be recorded? Will I be able to watch them after the conference?

    • Sorry the day/time doesn’t work. Yes, it will be recorded and the link will be emailed to conference participants.

      • To add, time will have to be allowed for editing. Once the sessions are available, an email will be emailed to those registered. Once posted, they will be available for a minimum of 30 days.Hope that helps clarify.
