Tracking & Scent Work
Instructor: Brian Robinson
Syllabus: An interesting and fun sport and anyone can have a go as long as they have a reasonable amount of control over their dog particularly around stock.
Tracking starts off at the Utility Dog (UD) level (which is the first of three levels in NZKC Working Trials) and UD is made up of different exercises across three areas (control, agility and scent). As with all levels of working trials, dog and handler must pass every exercise on the day if they wish to qualify.
Control consists of three exercises – Heel Free, Sendaway, Drop and Recall and Down Stay.
Agility also consists of three elements – Clear Jump, Scale Jump and Long Jump.
Scent which is made up of two exercises – Seek Back and Leash Track.
All breeds welcome!
