Teach Your Dog to Track ~ Tracking Tips

Teaching your dog to track takes more time and physical space than any of the basic obedience exercises. Also, some breeds of dogs are better at tracking and have better "noses" than others. Among the better tracking breeds are bloodhounds, beagles, most of the hound breeds, German shepherds and collies. For these exercises you will need some equipment. A harness is necessary for this kind of training, since your dog will be pulling you at times. A slip chain collar won't do, since it will be tightening on his neck. The leash must be at least 30 feet long and be made of a flat fabric or leather if possible.
