A lady has asked me to help with training her son's service dog. Her son has a condition where he will wander off (after disabling the alarms, etc). The service dog alerts that the oy has left the house and if the boy continues to leave, the dog will herd the boy back to the house.

The lady want to train the dog to track her son if he ever goes missing.

Obviously, start with footprint tracking with a person at the end of every track. Other than that... everything I know is based on sport tracking.

What should I know besides this?

Yeah - I did tell her that I'm really not the best person around for tracking training... but whatever. :confused:
