 Cost: $120.00 for Capital members; $140.00 for non-members

 This class is for dogs and handlers that are new to tracking to assist them in attaining the AKC
 Tracking Dog (TD) title.

 The first class will be held at Capital’s clubhouse and will include morning lecture on regulations,
 equipment, scent theory, basic tracklaying techniques, and maintaining a tracking log. In the
 afternoon, we will go to a nearby park for beginner tracks for each dog. Attendance at the first
 class is mandatory unless you are repeating this class.

 The remaining sessions will be held at Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, Virginia. It is
 important to attend all classes. Students will be required to maintain tracking logs.

 This class is a hands-on experience, where the participants will work with and handle their dogs
 in the field. The number of participants will be limited to ten (10) to insure a small teacher-
 student ratio and time for one-on-one instruction. Participants will be expected to stay for the
 duration of the class each day to observe and lay track for classmates. Class will generally
 begin at 11:00 am.

 Dogs are required to be on-leash at all times. Any student which permits their dog to run
 at-large on the tracking grounds will be excused from class with no refund.

 Any dog exhibiting aggressive behavior, as determined by the instructors, may be
 excused from class, without refund.

 Participants will be required to work at Capital’s TDX on March 7, 2010 or TD in December,
 2010.

 Confirmation of registration will be sent via email unless otherwise indicated.

 Cancellations must be received in writing or via email by noon, November 20, 2009 in order to
 receive a refund. Cancellations after November 20, 2009 will only receive a full refund if the
 spot can be filled from a waiting list. No refunds or substitutions will be made after the first
 class.

 Only one dog per handler.
