Hosted by Bellarine Dog Activities Group
Tracking is ideal for dogs which have high drive and require a means for release. Tracking is also a great way to build a strong partnership with your dog built on trust and understanding. Emphasis is placed on learning how your dog works and working with your dog as a team. In tracking, a trail is laid out by either yourself or another person (tracklayer). This trail can be anything from a few hundred meters to well over a kilometre.
At tracking theory workshops you will learn about the dogs amazing and often underestimated ability for tracking, working with your dog as a partner, reading your dogs body language, training progression, troubleshooting and understanding scent movement in the environment.
