    Default1st tracking lesson

    Yeah we had our first tracking lesson today. Amber seemed to like this idea of just going out and finding something. I still don't think she is connecting all the pieces yet, but I think she might catch on quickly. The trainer said she did well for a first lesson.
    After the lesson she asked me if I would like to run the agility course she had set up. It was a novice course and we ran it pretty well. The trainer asked how I had taught contacts because Amber did them so well. Its good to get a compliment from a new trainer ;D.
    Nothing like doing as many different things with a lab as possible.

    Have fun with the tracking, I love it! Some dogs pick it up very easily and some take a bit longer. My girl Teddy picked it up straight away but the Claude, who I am currently training, took alot longer to figure out what she was doing and now there is no stopping her!

    Ohh I forgot to mention the trainer didn't even charge for the lesson. She said that tracking people help each other out. She said she might charge something if she gets enough people together for a full class?!? but until then its free!! I think I like tracking people if they are all like her...lol

    Great job on the first lesson! It took Scotty a couple of lessons before he figured it out. Our trainer also did not charge us for tracking lessons because we were laying tracks for each other.

    my lab and i are attending a two-day tracking seminar the end of this month.

    there's a great book, "The Audible Nose: Training your dog to track", by Judi Adler. i ordered it and it's got some great info in it...one of the best books on tracking i've ever read!

    you can order it from Sweetbay Newfoundlands...here's the website.

    Very cool. Amber is very smart. I'm sure she'll pick it up in no time at all.

    oh, the tracking seminar is near my home on vancouver island in Courtenay, B.C.

    it's being led by Carol Pernicka, who's from Colorado and does tracking seminars all over North America.
