Tracking & Trailing - group classes

In the group courses you will learn all about Tracking & Trailing in a group of four students. During the classes, only one dog will be working at a time. The handlers will switch roles: you work your own dog, lay a track for another dog, guard the cars or observe another team together with the instructor. For the dogs this means they learn to follow tracks from all kinds of people and you as a handler get the chance to experience Tracking & Trailing from different perspectives.

 

This makes the group classes suitable for reactive dogs as well. However, make sure that your dog can stay in the car calmly when it is not his turn. When you dog is scared of people or has other behaviour issues, please contact us to discuss whether the course suits you and your dog.
