Dogs have an amazing sense of smell that is said to be 100,000 times stronger than humans and, because of this, they are often used to find lost people, animals, illegal drugs, and disaster victims. They can also detect cancer.
AKC tracking demonstrates a dog’s natural ability to recognize and follow a scent. It is the foundation of canine search and rescue work. In our Winnegamie AKC tracking class we will develop teamwork and the necessary motivation for success. We will learn the basics of tracking in our 6 week class that will prepare you for competition. Perhaps you simply want to enjoy the sport of tracking for the “sport”. Whatever you choose to do, tracking will be an outdoor activity that no doubt will bring you and your dog great joy and camaraderie.
Learn the basics of beginning AKC tracking and develop skills that will prepare you and your dog to become a successful tracking team. Our class is limited to 6 students. We will be meeting on Monday evenings at 5:00 pm at the Stephensville Farmers Park, N3802 State Rd. 76, Hortonville. Our first class will be on Monday, April 29th. Each class will run for about 3 hours. A class registration form can be found on the WDC website.
Annie Evarts is Lifetime member of WDC and an AKC and ASCA Tracking judge. Annie looks forward to sharing her knowledge of tracking with you!
