This is awesome!!!

Guys what do you say we start a 'tracking in progress' thread or soemthing where we can all post updates success/failures on our journey of training this? I think that would be fun to all train together sort of


Then SH you can tell us what we are doing wrong and we can blame you for not telling us how to do it right?

I think I created a monster. I'm cool with that. I have taken a break from training mine to make sure Cleo is having a great time and well taken care of.

I have a question, what is your opinion on using treats every so many feet to keep the dog on the track? I have heard both ways, and am not sure. I feel one way this will keep them interested, but also don't like to rely on food.
Edited to say I have a ten week old malinois pup, she is doing good, and I have no plans to compete but will actually use her for SAR (hopefull)

I determine that depending on the dog. Example: Betty the bloodhound doesn't need treats because she locks on a scent just fine. Cleo had to have treats all during training. Missy doesn't even stay on track with treats.

Oh... I could use this information!!! I trained our 2 dogs to "Search" in which Lazy runs around in a circle, nose on the ground attempting to find something... Whisky is better now, she knows to sniff then look. But now that I have a real guide, things should work better. Lazy used to be better then Whisky, back in the day when I was with him everyday training on this, I think he just forgot
