Hi Scent hound,
i am thoroughly enjoying your thread!
Its been years since i lived in a city, but when i did, tracking was the single most tiresome dog exercise that allowed them to be doing what they wished, to track.
It has brought back some fond memories of previous dogs ive had.
These days, i have bunnies to do the track laying for me.
Coz im old enough that walking the track once is sufficient lol

I am definitely start on the scent games as soon as I can figure out a good container!
As for tracking, what sort of scent do you guys find is the most effective? I have access to fresh blood for example. Do you use normal treats at the end of track or something "extra special"?

For tracking I use human scent, just have someone lay a track.

As far as containers, what scent source are you using? I vary containers so they don't always alert on just plastic for instance. So I use Tupperware, glass jars, salt shakers, PVC pipe, and nothing, I'll just put source out on its own.

I was hoping he will do scent games for his normal dogfood but if not livertreats.
After that probably teabags.
The problem is that I seem to have a hard time getting anyone involved in training, even if it's just to lay a track.
If I do go for human scent, is it easier if the person walks barefoot?

No, shoes and clothing is just fine. Dogs track using dead skin riffs or crushed vegetation. Scent specific uses the skin, crushed vegetation is easily lost on pavement or with cross tracks.

Look into the differences in tracking vs trailing.
