Quarry/helper courses

I am interested in taking a Quarry/helper course. My department does not offer this course, but would approve me going on my own time and money.
I am obviously going to have to travel. A major city would be easier and cheaper for flights. Canada or US is fine (I am on the east coast of Canada)
I am hesitant to go to a private company. I have found one in March in Winnipeg put on by their Police service. Just wondering if anyone else had suggestions.
Thanks.

If you are law enforcement, check with the USPCA or NAPWDA in your area and see if they are sponsoring anything in your area.

Thanks, will do.
I checked with the Canadian Police Canine Association, that is how I found the Winnipeg course, but there seem to be a lot of different associations in the US. I didn't really know which ones to check out.

I am in LE, but I know there aren't any courses in my province, likely not even on the East coast.

Re: Quarry/helper courses

Have you thought about contacting the Fundy Schutzhund Club and asking them about learning to do helper work? There are also a few places in the USA in the East that might be of interest to you.

All our dogs are fed naturally!
