Kroyer, of Hutto, Texas, is a veteran dog sport competitor, police K9 trainer, coach, judge and sought-after seminar presenter both domestically and abroad. 

Due to limited room, this event is only open to participants. The seminar has 14 working spots and 10 audit spots.

Possibly one working spot and a few audit spots are available.

Nosework is a fun new dog competition venue derived from narcotics dog training, where dogs compete in searching for certain essential oils instead of narcotics. In our area we participate in nosework trials offered by the United Kennel Club. 

A UKC nosework trial will be held at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds Oct. 5-7, beginning at 9 a.m. each day.  Three elements in all five class levels will be offered: On Friday dogs will be searching exterior areas; on Saturday they’ll be searching vehicles; and on Sunday they’ll be searching containers. The public is invited to watch.
