That was my reason for posting it, Mike. I don't know why it posted twice, either. Someone'll have to delete the double post.in the interest of learning new techniques n gathering information -- what is peoples opinion of the above linked tracking method?
i used this method on my 2nd dog. for the most part, i started his tracking/trailing on hard surfaces using SIAB. the results were good. i would be inclined to say that starting hard surface tracks early on is more important than the actual method used. as we know, dogs are creatures of habit and if we spend SO much time teaching tracking on vegetation, it is that much more difficult to bring the dogs nose down on hard surfaces (especially if the dog has already been trained in area searches).Kristen Cabe said:Nice of you to try it and give feedback!
