I Tracked Today!!

Whoooo!! So much fun!

HM and I started Tracking lessons today!! It was pretty cool, our instructor Marie is really nice, and very knowledgeable.

We start simple, and I only did a straight line track at about 30 metres in length. I have to build some drive for my article, which is what is laid at the end of the track...usually a leather glove.

I did three tracks tonight, and Marie was impressed how quickly I caught on from the first track to the third!

Tracking is a fun way to get out with your owner and use what comes naturally...Our Noses!!

Oooh, that's awesome! Isn't tracking great? I like to sniff out all kinds of things. It would be fun to try tracking lessons!

Oh Simba you are SO lucky! There seems to be a lot of dog oriented stuff happening where you live! I can't even find any small dog play groups where I live! :(

But you gotta keep us (or atleast me) updated on your tracking business. It sounds SO fun, and I'd love to try it with Gunner someday.

That is great! It is so amazing to watch dogs track - they are really incredible animals. I have done some tracking with Bosley and we both loved it. I would like to get back into it, but I can't always fit everything into the day (sigh). I hope you continue on with tracking - it is so good for dogs to use their natural abilities.
