About the event
If you have participated in a tracking workshop elsewhere, please do let us know;
K9 Tracking; in this workshop you will learn how a dog tracks human scent, you and your pup will get the opportunity to follow pre-laid tracks under Susans guidance.
The workshop will be suitable for beginners and intermediate levels.
The workshop will cover bush & field tracking, and will be a full day. Due to the timing of this event it is not possibe to guarentee field tracks (field tracking is depenadent on the hay being cut, if we have a good hay season we will have fields - but if the farmers leave the hay on the field, will track in the bush).
We will also run the workshop on the Sunday as seperated event (you can indicate on the registration form what day you prefer).
There will be approx 1 hour break for lunch (not inlcuded)
Finish time is approx
Dogs must be over 6months
You will need to have a vehicle that can navigate terrian, as we may move location several times throughout the day and drive through fields and on bush tracks. Be prepared to work out of your vehicle. Sorry but we can not arrange vehicles for you.
No females in heat (within week off), please see our policy. Even if we dont notice, the boys will!
You will need a non-restrictive harness and a long line, in +12ft (if you need guidance on this contact us before the event).
