Does any one lay there own tracks for their dog? I was asked a question the other night, when I stated that I have layed my own tracks. The question was, why does the dog not just go to the handler when he is started at a scent pad, if the handler layed the track? Why will the dog continue along the trail until he reaches the object be it food or a toy? I gave an answer but wanted to see how some of you might have answered it.
