The dogs and their handlers will be working on trailing and finding target scent in rural and urban areas.
To date, North Star K9 has registered 32 K9 teams from as far away as California and Florida.
Brazil was chosen as the site for the seminar because the assistant director, Paul Baty, and board members Alan Clark and Andy Gill are residents. Director of North Star, Maryln Adams, Cincinnati, says that many of North Star's free and three-day weekend trainings are conducted in and near Brazil.
The seminar T-shirt is also being printed in Brazil.
North Star K9 Training Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is to offer free and low cost training to search and rescue K9 handlers and law enforcement K9 handlers.
Those wishing to assist should note the handlers would appreciate donations of water, soft drinks, snacks and firewood.
A North Star board member would be willing to pick the donations up. For more information, call 513-262-0496.
Headquarters for the June 5-9 seminar will be at the FBC Christian Youth Camp. Instructors from five different states will begin arriving Saturday, June 4.
