About the Author:

Deborah Davis is a mid-west tracker, seminar leader, and author who has placed AKC tracking titles on multiple dogs. She is Tracking Chair for the upcoming American Belgian Tervuren Club (ABTC) 2010 Nationals Dog Show. Successfully training, handling and showing both dogs and horses her entire adult life, Davis bases her tracking training methods on two basic premises. First, we don't teach dogs how to track - they are born knowing how to track. As handlers, our job is to teach them to want to track for us and to follow a particular scent trail of our choosing. Second, if the dog is not doing his job the handler must be doing something wrong. Davis titled both of her current dogs at an AKC tracking test put on by the Indian Nations Tracking Club at John Zinc Ranch north of Tulsa, Oklahoma on Dec 2, 2007. At 8 months of age "Forest" earned his TD while "Yaqui" passed his TDX test at 16 months. Deborah travels the Midwest to give seminars on handler skills.
