This 2 part workshop will be run over 2 consecutive weeks and will work towards the UK Sniffer Dogs Bronze level for tracking.
Tracking is the ability detect, recognise and follow a specific scent. Our dogs are born with this skill and would use it for survival before being domesticated. Humans have harnessed this for years by applying dog behaviour to the dogs ability to track, we now use tracking dogs for lots of different operational purposes:
- Police for criminals and evidence.
- Military for opposition and threats and in some countries poachers.
- Finding Animals
When tracking a human the dogs are taught to follow Track Scent, which is the disturbance in the ground left by the humans feet, (footprints) tracking dogs are taught to keep their nose down and follow the whole track not just to get to the end, but to also indicate on any evidence (articles) dropped by the criminal and which route he took.
This 2 part workshop will teach your dog to detect, recognise and follow a pre-laid track and indicate on articles
