Yes, you did very well. In some places it reminded me of Andreas Broqvist and how he spelled country like this "cuntry". A bit of gentle humor with that but I liked how his posts demanded that I read every word.

Again, I sincerely appreciate your effort and explanations. Very good for proper and intelligent dialogue on working dogs. And, of course, I always will read every discussion about scent based work. I enjoy it very much.

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.
So I did for few next days some "clean" simple tracking on short grass after the rain. It did seem to boost her up real good.
I will see it influence on the city...
It Made me think maybe to do few of thos before each single urban tracking.
In about 1/3 ratio it will cost time but i think it will do good with the dog
What do you think?

I think changing things up is a good idea, sounds like your results helped to confirm that. Variety is the spice of life.

Re: urban tracking training video

I do mostly the same thing. When teaching the tracking portion of a patrol dog class, every Friday we go back into the woods and do all grass, wooded non distraction(on) lead tracks so the dog doesn't forget just how easy tracking is.

In addition once a year I pull my teams off the street for three days and go back to the woods doing the same thing back (on) lead as I track mostly off lead. It helps clear up a few problems or bad habits the team may have picked up while doing actual tracks.The dogs really seem to enjoy this break and perform really well.

Re: urban tracking training video

Very very nice work! Not much impresses me these days but knowing the difficulty and amount of work it takes to get a dog to track like that is most impressive. I love how easy your dog is to read and which is a testament to the both of you as a team.

In the last 2 years I have done primarily hard surface tracking training with my PSD and his success rate has skyrocketed on the street. And, like Phil, I hit the soft stuff periodically as I've found that the amount of soft surface odor will make my boy a bit lazy after working with minimal odor on the hard stuff.

Again...nice job.

Thank you Howard its an honor to get that compliment from you.

I am very hopeful about that dog in the street
It is the first time I am going to combines strong tracking, urban tracking and trailing in the same dog and a lot of peapole depending on us when we finish.


About the soft surface I think I know what do you mean about it make some laziness with the dog
It affect my dog somehow the same
