You will learn: -How to motivate your dog to follow a scent trail or find a hidden item through the use of positive reinforcement and effective rewards. -The importance of teaching your dog is step-by-step increments and allowing sufficient times for breaks and relaxation. -The best way to teach your dog the names of his toys, find lost keys, and how to retrieve items left on a track. -All about the pancake tracking method used to begin to teach your dog how to track and then how to keep your dog challenged as he begins to tackle more difficult tracking exercises.
