Presented by NJ's own Joe "the Bloodhound" Nick. Director of Atlantic County’s John “Sonny” Burke K9 Academy. Open to Competitive Sport Enthusiasts, as well as Law Enforcement and SAR K9 Handlers.

Before filling the position of Director of the Academy, Joe served 25 years with the Dept of Corrections and as the lead instructor teaching and certifying numerous working K9 teams. 

   

Structure: Each day, learning will be strengthened by watching dog and handler teams working real life scent problems. Joe will discuss the search components with each handler, providing feedback and suggestions on how to increase consistency and clarity. Participants must feel comfortable talking about the searches and getting feedback in front of the group.
