ever wondered if your dog could track?
If your dog has a nose, he can track. You’ve seen him do so on walks with his nose to the ground or lifted high in the air. Tracking demonstrates the dog’s natural ability to follow the scent of one or more persons; 'the tracklayer' over various kinds of terrain increasing in difficulty to a longer, well-aged track, more turns and multiple scent articles.
No matter what age, what breed or what size. Teaching your dog to track is the perfect to way to spend time together, build your relationship, and challenge both of you mentally and physically. You can teach very young puppies to track even before they can start formal obedience training, and these positive methods work with adult dogs, too.

why not come along and try it?
Set in Norfolk our classes are designed to be both enjoyable and informative carried out at a pace that allows both yourself & dog to absorb the lesson in a relaxed manner. Each class is structured to the individual ability of the dog and during each session in addition to practical instruction you will be taught the theory of tracking. Should you wish during your lesson we can also place a small dog-cam on your dogs back so you can see it all from your dogs point of view!
Why you and your dog should Try Tracking?
-Tracking is fun for both you and your dog using positive methods.
- A dog can be taught to track at any age—15 week-old puppies up to adult.
- It improves fitness for both dog and owner
- It is mentally stimulating for both of you.
-You’ll gain a new-found respect for just how intelligent your dog is.
We always start with a one hour assessment this is to make sure your dog has the inclination and ability to track. There is no commitment to take further lessons at this point its simply a starter lesson to see if both yourself and your dog enjoy it. Should you wish to continue after the assessment you can either opt for individual one hour lessons or paired lessons where you will be placed with another student of equal ability for two hours. From there with the help of our instructor you can decide your own learning program at a time to suit you. £25 per hour. In addition we can organise a tracking introduction day for dog training clubs, please email for further information and rates.
