Paws Plus Training provides a variety of classes in Tracking. Tracking is the sports form of Canine
Search and Rescue where dogs follow scents to an article such as a glove. Four courses are provided - Beginning and Advanced
Tracking, Urban Tracking and Variable Surface Tracking.
Tracking focuses on the foundations of tracking and preparation for the Tracking Dog (TD) test. The
workshop is a prerequisite for tracking classes. More information can be found on the home page.
- Advanced Tracking focuses on building the dog and handler team's endurance and foundation for the Tracking Dog Excellent
- Urban Tracking is a new titling program offered by AKC. Urban Tracking utilizes
tracking skills to follow scent and identify articles in urban environments. Classes offered will focus on preparation for
an Urban Tracking test.
- Variable Surface Tracking (VST) is a different form of tracking that
challenges the dog and handler to follow an aged track through streets, parking lots, buildings and/or other areas away from
vegetation. VST classes will center around skills needed to train and participate in a VST test.
