Tracking I

The nose knows!

Tracking dogs are trained to find a person by following the scent left behind in that person’s footprints. Tracking training develops trust, communication, and a deeper relationship between dog and owner, as the handler must learn to read and rely upon his dog. This course is designed to prepare dog and handler teams to compete for the CKC tracking title (TD).   Classes are offered spring (late April) and fall (early Sept).

This is a very popular class and typically fills from our wait list.   If interested in being placed on that list, just let us know!
