UK Sniffer Dogs Bronze Series 1 & 2 Tracking is the ability the dog has to detect, recognise and follow a specific scent of ground disturbance. Our dogs are born with this skill and would use it for survival before being domesticated. Humans have harnessed this for years, by applying dog behaviour to the dogs ability to track, we now use tracking dogs for lots of different operational purposes: - Police for criminals and evidence. - Military for opposition and threats, some countries poachers - and even animals. When tracking a human the dogs are taught to follow track scent, which is the disturbance in the ground left by the humans footprints. In tracking the dogs are taught to keep their nose down and follow the whole track not just to get to the end, but to also indicate on any evidence (articles) dropped by the criminal, and which route they took. We will start by teaching 2 things: follow the specific track scent and indicate on articles along the way.
