Tracking

dog trackingTracking is the natural ability that all puppies are born with; this enables them to find their mother and the source of their food supply. At only a few minutes of age, blind and deaf, their keen sense of smell is what will make the difference between life and death.  It is how we as handlers develop that skill in conjunction with obedience that creates the 100 point tracking score.

Tracking can only be developed with the use of food, therefore, the very basic concept of tracking is using food in a foot step to foot step manner extending the distance, conditions both weather and terrain, length of time before the track is worked and obedience for the articles.
