"What is Tracking?"

AKC Tracking is a canine sport that demonstrates a dog’s natural ability to recognize and follow the scent of a persons scent. In tracking the dog is in charge, because only he knows how to use his nose to find and follow the track. The handler plays a supporting role, including knowing how to help the dog that has overshot the corner, helping the dog over obstacles and keeping the line from tangling. For many, the greatest pleasure of tracking are the hours spent outside, training and interacting with their dogs.

The Dog Obedience Club of Lee County offers monthly classes to show handlers how to track with their dogs. We meet at various locations to provide your dog with different scenting problems. Your dog will need a non-restrictive halter. Eventually you will need a 20 to 40 foot line, flags, flagging, inexpensive leather gloves, cloth articles and perhaps a GPS.

We normally meet the second Saturday of the month at 8:00 am, but that can vary depending on show schedules. The next classes will be April 9 and May 14.
