Zombie Detection Dog Training Academy Inaugural Class in St. Helen, MI

The Department of Zombie Management (DZM) has granted the Dog Scouts of America Troop 217 the right to host a Department certified Zombie Detection Dog Training Academy (ZDDTA) at the Dog Scout camp in St. Helen, MI October 27-28th, 2012, with an optional craft night and bonfire on October 26th.

For the first time ever, civilian dog/handler teams will learn the following core skills that have been found essential for the successful Zombie Detection Team (K9-ZDT):

·         Zombie Detection
·         In Search Communication
·         Zombie Avoidance
·         Physical Agility
·         K9 Care
·         First Aid
·         Zombie Containment

These core skills will prepare dog/handler teams for the DSA, K9-ZDT designation which is the gold standard of Zombie Dog Detection certification and which qualifies the team to respond to zombie emergencies nationwide and around the world.

Participants will also have the option of earning 3 merit badges: K-9 Fitness, Pet Care, and First aid.

The weekend will end with a simulated zombie hunt in which participants will have a chance to use what they have learned to earn a K9-ZDT title. Three levels of title will be offered and top ranking teams will earn additional recognition.
