Dog Training Event AMPWDA West Virginia State Mantrailing Workshop

 AMPWDA West Virginia State Mantrailing Workshop

Location: Harpers Ferry, WV

COMMENT FROM A PREVIOUS PARTICIPANT - "This is a very unique venue with the farm, all the history and the beautiful fall colors, I am really glad I put this on my schedule."

They still have 3 or 4 slots open for West Virginia State Mantrailing Workshop in Harpers Ferry, WV. 

This workshop runs from 10/14 thru 10/17, 3 1/2 days. 

The first two days are filled with specific task training and running trails with our trainers. 

Day 3 is for testing and additional practice trails, if you so desire. 

They finish up on Sunday with retests as needed.

They will train on the Harpers Ferry Civil War Battlefields, which are not only interesting but also perfect for running trails with lots of options and different surfaces. 

The base camp is at the Hewitt Farm, owned by our host, Bill & Lisa Hewitt. It too has some great training venues plus a large classroom. 

Typically the middle of October is a perfect time to visit Harpers Ferry, right now, according to predictions, fall foliage will be either near peak or peak.

Be sure to allow time to check out the various tourist attractions - especially, the town of Harpers Ferry - very scenic, very cool.

Pet Friendly Lodging available at Motel 6 in Charles Town - tell them you are with AMPWDA for special rate - see flyer

Free Camping Available at the Hewitt Farm (No Hookups)

Welcome UK and Worldwide Visitors

Welcome UK and worldwide visitors and friends to Family Disaster Dogs online! Although I'm an American author and dog professional the worldwide web has given me the opportunity to connect with some wonderful folks who have contributed pictures for my books. The "Start Mantrailing" book features RRI K9 North Scotland trained Search and Rescue Dog "Amber" on the cover and her teammates training in the book, plus American dogs using my training methods. A portion of sales of the Start Mantrailing book or copies were donated to RRI North Scotland. The children's picture book "My Puppy Can Find Me" has my daughter and bloodhound as illustrations by UK cartoonist Scotty King. You can find the books on Amazon UK or use the contact page to order from me. When you click the links will take you to your own county pages of this site.
