Charlie loves, loves, loves tracking! It can be hard to find seminars and tracking tests, but here's one instance where it really pays to persevere. It's always wonderful to see a dog perform the tasks for which that breed was developed, but all dogs have noses, and all dogs derive great joy from being able to use them. Here are some resources for getting started in tracking:
- The AKC's Guide to Tracking
- Gone Tracking: sponsored by the Dog Tracking Clubs of Maine and Massachusetts
- Geoff Stern's amazing list of Tracking Resources
- The Charles River Dog Training Club's list of Tracking Resources
By the way, save all those ripped, disemboweled stuffed toys. They can make great receptacles for treats when you're starting out in tracking.
