urban tracking training video

Here is a video of me training Tara on tracking mostly on concrete
With some false tracks and distraction.
This is early stage of training
I hope you enjoy and don't spare me what you think.

Re: urban tracking training video

I enjoyed that very much. Did you know that guy in the wheel chair was going to be there? I suspect not but I thought I'd ask.

Glad to see you post. I was just thinking about you two days ago and wondered if you were still making and putting up videos. Seems I got my answer.

Re: urban tracking training video

Looks like your doing a nice job. My only suggestion is with "early training" I wouldn't add false tracks and distractions just yet.

Re: urban tracking training video

I noticed that the dog was much more intense after he found the first toy. Took off on the next leg like a house on fire.

Good job.

I don't know about that Bob. With my trailing dogs I put false tracks in early. I want them discriminating from the onset especially in an urban setting. For tracking dogs, I'm not so sure but it seems like this dog is handling it well. Even the distractions are not *that bad* because it's evening. I imagine it would be worse in the daytime.

Hi Nicole it's good hearing (/reading) from you.

It's was an intensive period thos last few years
So i was mostly work on the field and there was not much "foruming"
Or videos for me.
But now it is the time to lay back a little and train my new dogs I retired my old jagger.
So there will be some more.

I am glad you liked the video, I didn't know the old guy will be there but I was guessing Wevwill encounter some peapoles on the way.
Becuse this dog learned to track for the bite she even has conflict there for a second but she got answer to her riddle and keep on going on the track.
This was also the place of the false track with the food but I think she mostly distract becuse of the conflict between her wishing to bite on the track and avoidance from choosing the wrong decoy / track.

Best regards
Sefi

Thank you for your reply.
I am happy you like it.

Acording to most of my mantors The false tracks in urban tracking are useally comming quite earlyer becouse when you go to the street you can not expect all the false tracking so you must teach it to the dog early while you can controll them
Or find a sterile place (it's harder when your track become houndert meters)


But I think I take your advise I feel the dog does needs some short fun tracks with not much distractions for now. And it will do her good. Thank you.

Bob and Sarah
I agree with both of you, i think a dog of urban tracking need to learn like trailing dog to learn the false tracks earlier becuse he exspose (I don't know how to spell it in English) to the earlier just like the trailing dog that have the opretunity early to notice other trails and move to them becuse of the high nose.
By the way With this dogs I am going to combine trailing with operative fast tracking (something I never tried before but I do believe in).
So it double the early risk of false tracks.

But as I writed before I feel some simple short sterile tracks can do good to my dog now and I though about it with myself after bob reply.

About the distractions- the strange peapoles -the dog track for bite and she must choose the right "target" and ignore the other. It is gradually need to be done while tracking near other peapoles.
About the strange food - it is important to me to see the dog get assitance from the "right food" and not distract from wrong food - it help to know the dog "focused" on the tracking scent and not for clues. Do you know what I mean?
The change of tracking terrain give this indevidual dog questions and make her more consantrate on the track.

I Hope I explain my self ok.

Good job.
Thank you Sarah I am very glad you liked it.
Good notice of the dog change after the ball.

The first 200 meters of the track (200 meters
before we start filming) was high grass on sand where I needed the dog not to move to trailing and not move to fast so I work a lot of correction on her to put her down the track started like this on pharpess to make her more concitrete on the following, but did put her down like you noticed. knowing the dog my track layer wisely put the ball where he was and before the "next chapter" becuse she excpected the effect of the intense corrections that will come and wanted to get the dog higher for the track to come. And it work good.
Good eye you have.
