This layout took way too long for such a simple thing. The photos are stills from our video recorder.


Journaling: In February 2012 I increased Cody’s tracking training. We started working two times each week, increasing the length and time of the tracks, removing some of the rewards on the track and giving him rewards from my pocket when he reached the glove at the end of the track. Finally, we began to work on partially marked and unmarked tracks which forced me to “read” him appropriately. For example, I
learned that he would lift his head when he lost the scent and would circle at
corners but pull strongly when he was on the track again and following the scent.
At this point I would say we really became a team because he did his job
confidently and enthusiastially and I knew his tracking behavior and I could trust
him to do the job himself.
