November

We receive several great questions through out the month from our members.  We would like to welcome you to our question of the month section! 

Should working dog teams be certify once per year per discipline or complete two or more certifications per discipline per year?  As an example, a team certifies with the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA) in all trained disciplines and six-months later the same team certifies with the North American Police Work Dog Association.
