NOTES

Description
Harmonious State Training is offering a Bomb Proof Indications workshop with Danielle Todd CMT on April 19th in Leduc, Alberta.

Danielle's experience in detection started in 1998 while attending dog training school and learning intensive tracking for human scent and narcotic detection. Then she went on to train three of her own German Shepherds in tracking as well as narcotic detection. In 2009 she attended an International Association of Bomb Technicians & Investigators conference with Police K9 and Military with her Belgian Malinois Vader, and successfully completed a training workshop in advanced explosives and terrorists activities. She also p assed a K9 explosives course consisting of military commercial explosives detection field training, a K9 based detection class, and a final exam. In 2013 she learned that detection had been brought to the pet world as a sport in which anyone can participate. Danielle wanted to help people continue to build relationships with their dogs through detection. Danielle has hosted and instructed Sport Detection seminars, fun matches, group classes and competed in SDDA Trials. She has titled her Malinois in Advanced and her Brittany Spaniel to a Championship level as well as her up and coming German Shepherd to the Advanced level. Danielle loves being a part of helping people experience this fun sport of a dog doing what they love, using their nose.
