I signed up for the beginning tracking course through my obedience club. Its 3 sessions long and very intro stuff. After 2 sessions I am SO in love with it. Its a lot of fun, Scout really really enjoys it and it seems to come rather naturally to him? Maybe that's why I find it so fun! So far we've only done straight tracks, but Scout finds every object I put down. And he also follows my exit track too, so I don't think turns are going to be too hard for him. We've worked up to a 20 minute aged track and today I plan on doing a 30 minute long one. And then we have class tonight. I can't wait to work more with him on this and get him in some tracking trials this fall. Who knows, if he gets really good at it maybe we'll volunteer to do search and rescue. Though I'm sure its very hard, I think it would be a rewarding way to volunteer one's time.  Just thought I'd share what we're up to.

How fun.  That sounds really neat.  I am glad he is enjoying it too and picking it up so well.
If he becomes a search and rescue dog, that would be most excellent.

Thanks guys! And its useful! For example, if I ever drop something while I'm walking in the woods he'd be trained to help me find it! That would be nice, though hopefully it will not happen.

Cool! I don't think I ever mentioned it, but there is one Weim in a franchise in California, he might be retired now, that did drug detection work.

That's cool. I think there's a weim in Canada that does mold dectecting work. They do have good sniffers. Class was fun today. There is a woman in class with a mini poodle. Its really neat to see how differently they track.

That sounds like so much fun.   It is neat different dog breeds are doing it.  Dogs love to have a job.  Odaat has been bugging me to go do his job of horseback riding again.  He is our fearless protector when he goes.  He thinks it is fun and that it is his job to go along and keep the rabbits and other dogs away from us. Cheesy   I will take him again this week.
If Meri gets to the point, she is like my son, something gets into her hands and than disappears, Scout will find it for you.  Hey, can you send Scout down to find my nail clipper Dustin lost, and my pocket knife he somehow lost a long time ago even though his hands were not suppose to be on it in the first place.  I will keep a look out for Scout.  I will send a scent of my house and you can send him on his way.

Cool! Tracking sounds fun. I have had a hard time focusing on obedience with school, but, pending certain decisions being made, Lucy and I may positively require something to do together. I found out about a group of Berner people who practice tracking through one of my trainer friends. I want to do something that will engage her and be a practical outlet for her energy (she has lots of it!).

I first read the word engage as enlarge.  It took me a second, had to re read it, while wondering why you wanted to enlarge her and be a practical outlet.... rotfl

no agility here janet. Too expensive at the moment. Plus the training centers aren't exactly close.

Oops I meant Tracking.  Agility is just my favorite to watch, so I messed up.  Or I could have changed the subject in the thread again from tracking to agility. Grin
