Tracking is effectively training your dog to follow the scent left on the ground by a person passing through the environment.  We do this in a structured way to ensure that your dog is following human scent and not crushed vegetation or food.  We work to the standards required in both Working Trials and The UK Tracking Dog Association tests.

 

The purpose of the Tracking Assessment is for the dog and handler to;

 

  • demonstrate their ability to work happily as a team

  • have an enjoyable and positive experience which encourages them to continue developing their skills

 

and for the dog to;

 

  • follow a track left by a human

  • locate a small number of articles left on the track and, at the higher levels, locate a hidden person

  • have an enjoyable and positive experience which encourages them to continue developing their skills
