About the event
Vita Allison has enjoyed tracking with a number of dogs of various breeds, especially in Urban situations. She has titled over 30 dogs of different breeds in AKC and other venues, often achieving the highest awards and national rankings. She has written numerous articles to help people get started tracking, many of which were published in Dog Sport Magazine. Vita is fascinated by the science of scent and is always learning new training techniques. She would really enjoy introducing you and your dog to tracking!
This is a 2-day workshop with 2 weeks in between each workshop to give ample time for practicing. Participants should sign up for both days as they do build upon each other but it is not required. If you can only attend one day, that is acceptable.
This workshop is for all dog enthusiasts who are interested in learning the basics of tracking.
Some of the points covered will be:
- Why tracking is a great sport for almost everyone
- Training a "deep nose" for a solid foundation
- Article indication
- Line handling
- Personalizing your training plan for success
- Plenty of time for questions
What to bring:
- A chair for yourself and crate or pen for your dog, canopy if available, water bowl/water, plenty of small, soft treats, flat buckle collar or martingale & leash. You are welcome to bring any tracking equipment you have, but it is not at all necessary.
- 12 Working Spots – $125/spot/day
- Unlimited Audit Spots – $50/spot/day
