I was looking for something else and came across this item.

http://snipurl.com/11tr6

What the hey? I have read a lot of tracking training discussions, but I have NEVER seen anyone mention BLINDFOLDING their dog! What in the heck is this? Is this a whole area of tracking training I have been unaware of?

From Tom Rose and Gary Patterson's book: 'Training The Competitive Working Dog'.
"For the person with problems finding the track or having a dog which sight tracks too much or fails to show proper concentration on the track, the blindfold may be the ideal tool".

I can understand how it would reduce distraction but it seems the effort to get the dog used to it might be pita!
