The 15th International Rescue Dog Symposium will take place in MART Museum in Rovereto (IT) under the theme ‘Rescue dog work changes – Rescue dog work through the ages!’ and will start on Thursday, 16.04.2015, at noon with a welcome snack then followed by lectures in the afternoon and a common aperitif/warm buffet in the evening. On Friday, 17.04.2015, there will be lectures held during the whole day, before IRO will invite to an Italian evening. On Saturday, 18.04.2015, lectures will be offered until noon.

Afterwards there will be a joint transport to a nearby Grappa distillery with guided tour and Grappa tasting as well as lunch before we move on to Marco to the generously laid out trainings area of the Italian organisation Scuola Provinciale Cani da ricerca e catastrofe ONLUS – SPCDRC. Within this national afternoon, they will offer demonstrations with their partners and local emergency response organisations. There will then be a farewell party with lots of culinary delights, music and entertainment in Marco that evening!

Please be aware that the IRO meeting of delegates will be held on Sunday, 19.04.2015, at the MART museum in Rovereto (IT), 09am – 12.00am.
We also want to point out the possibility of training for all NRO on the training grounds of SPCDRC in Marco (IT) from 20. – 23.04.2015, 06pm – 10pm. An International IRO testing event will take place there from 24. – 26.04.2015 (International day of search and rescue dogs 2015!).

All in all we are sure to offer a very good supporting program next to interesting lectures. This will also allow a combination together with the IRO meeting of delegates and/or training possibility and an International IRO testing event. We are looking forward to welcoming you and to an active exchange of information!

We are very happy to have local support from the already for many years existing IRO member organisation Scuola Provinciale Cani da ricerca e catastrofe ONLUS (SPCDRC) .
