Dog Training: Take it to the Trails
Scent Tracking Class for you and your dog
If you know dogs, you will know that it is all about the nose. Dogs love to use their noses to find things - it is one of their most fun activities.
If you have a dog that has been through a basic Leadership/Obedience course and is ready to take things to a new level, consider a Tracking Class. Tracking is an activity that gives your dog a job - engaging their most highly developed sense - their sense of smell.
In our Tracking Class our trainers will teach you how to lay a track and train your dog to follow it, so that you can Take it to the Trails with your dog for some connected time together wherever and whenever you are looking for an adventure.
During this 6 week session, we will teach you all of the basics of scent tracking including :
Laying a track, progressing from the scent of a meat reward to laying your own scent for your dog to follow.
We start with a straight line, then add turns and twists – change the reward and get your dog tracking. We will take you to a trail and show you how to take it into the bush, or onto a field. We end the group of classes with a friendly competition between the dogs in the group with prizes for the best trackers.
