Dogs have an incredible sense of smell and humans have put those amazing noses to work to find disaster victims, contraband, drugs and event detect cancer. The sport of tracking dogs use their noses to follow a human scent track over distance. It is a fun and rewarding sport, especially for those who enjoy the outdoors with their nosy canine companion.
Tracking lessons are available by appointment with Liz Carter. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 775-813-0856! Introduction to Tracking introduces dogs and handlers to the beginning concepts of tracking, including equipment, line handling and of course working the track. These classes are taught outdoors throughout the Carson Valley and Reno areas. Classes are open to dogs 16 weeks and older.
