IGP - A (Tracking Training)

  • This test requires the dog to track footsteps over mixed terrain, change direction and show absolute accuracy and commitment to finding the track.
  • It must also find dropped articles and indicate their locations to the handler.
  • Often this is done under less than ideal circumstances with difficult cover, bad weather conditions, and an aged track.
  • Many find tracking to be the most satisfying experience in training when only the handler and dog are working together.
  • It is certainly the most peaceful part of IGP.
