Tracking is a stimulating sport for dog and handler and an excellent way to develop that special bond with your dog while participating in an activity that you will find both challenging and rewarding. If you have been wanting to try tracking but don’t know where to begin, if you’re curious to learn more about the sport, or if you have an eager dog that spends a lot of time with her nose down, this clinic is for you.
The day will consist of classroom and outside presentations and hands on exercises in the field both with and without your dog.
The seminar was structured to provide handlers with a foundation of training principles and techniques to begin tracking training with their canine companion and, if desired, working towards the Tracking Titles as offered by the American Kennel Club (AKC). We hope participants left the seminar with a fundamental knowledge of scent theory, tracking equipment selection and handling, tracking training theory, AKC tracking test regulations and requirements, track setting and mapping, interpretation of a dog’s actions while tracking and common tracking problems (both human and canine) and their solutions. In addition to the formal presentation, there was opportunity for questions and discussion.
