A sport to develop smell of the dog: tracking!
The pros of tracking work in police or customs. Without going so far, some breeds have a smell particularly end develop this quality set can be a new opportunity to increase complicity between the master and the dog! Tracking, how it works? I propose a discovery inspiring (no pun intended!) in this article.
Sports Tracking: Description
Utility tracking is played professionally in the police. We will focus here on sports tracking.
Tracking appealed to the olfactory qualities of the dog that needs to stay focused on a trail to follow, left by a “tracer” or just before (hot track) or more than an hour before the start of the test (cold track).
Tracking is done on varied terrain, outdoor.
There are two types of tracking:
- Free tracking: the dog follows a single path and must return the object at the end of the track intact to his master remained at the starting point.
- In line of Bloodhound tracking: a 10 meters long connects the dog to his master. The tracer filed objects that the dog must find. Finally, it must be able to recognize the plotter in a group.
During the contest, must have received good grades at tracking free to access line of Bloodhound tracking events.
Tests Requested For Tracking
Tracking competitions are open to all well-trained dogs. However, some competitions are reserved to purebred dogs.

Concentrated on tracking, events are playing on the increasing difficulty. Traps are added to the track: false leads, wider field, angles to follow, time between tracing and tracking. To indicate that it has found the object, the dog must sit in front of his master with the object in his mouth or lie down in front of the object by looking at his master.
The dog receives a rating which depends on its quality and respect for the rules.

Conduct of a Contest of Tracking
Looking for a new opportunity to enjoy the cold and the mud? I have good news for you: the season of tracking is held between September and March.
The ground is prepared in advance by an authorized “tracer”, according to a plan decided according to the difficulty level of the test. The master who follows the path of the dog is the “driver”.
To complete his quest, the dog has a time limit of 10 minutes, in general. It must not deviate more than 30 cm of the track and must also find objects left on the way by the plotter.
Where to Practice Tracking?
It is best to start the practice when the dog is still young and easy to learn because it is a demanding test, which takes time and patience. Unless you have a lot of experience, the master has rather interest to tosign up with his dog in a club or to use the services of a dog trainer.
Outside the city, many clubs offer subscriptions to train.
Price to Practice Tracking
Kennel club, it often offers subscriptions to the year between 50 and 160 or collective courses paid by the hour, between 10 and €15.
