Tracking classes are to develop and enhance the dogs ability to track a specific human scent.
This tracking method is applicable to police, search and rescue, and competitive sport tracking, in venues such as police, Schutzhund, IPG, and AKC.
Many people find it rewarding to participate in tracking to develop team work with their dog, in an activity that is fun and rewarding for both of you!
These classes provide mental stimulation, and an outlet for teams that can be practiced anywhere, anytime, in any season!
