Shut the front door! You found it!!!!
I was sure this was eaten after I tried searching. Thank you! I have a few videos and progress updates.

I'm pretty sure this is going to force me to get my carcass out of bed even earlier every day, and that also makes me extremely excited
A bit off topic but did you see that Denis Fenzi's new online dog school has online nosework classes?!

I did!

Nosework is one of those things though that I'd really rather be in a class for, mainly just for setup reasons. There is only so much I can do in a 1 bedroom apartment, and I don't want to do car searches on my own car

We're gearing up for the Working Dog Championships, so LOTS of tracking. On Alfalfa right now, it looks about like this:



Not easy, but it's all we have in terms of grass/hay. Dirt here is concrete right now, not very fun either.

Tracking strictly for articles, many of them out there, super long track with many corners.

Raptor is tracking for articles now, shorter tracks.

I don't know of any tracking here other than he sar groups. Wish there was classes for it. How hard would it be to train a dog already doing well in nose work in tracking (akc) too?

IME k9nw and IPO/AKC tracking are not seen the same by a dog, because the later is step to step tracking. That's not to say you can't do both but more that they won't interfere with one another.

Most people track alone but it quells the boredom to track with friends.

Is there a good step by step online of tracking for dummies? Lol

ETA a dog did come up and eat part of the beginning of the track but I felt like the confusion was more than that, I may be misreading things though.
I was struggling with Kastle's pace when we did footstep to footstep food with random blanks thrown in. I recently joined a new club and we changed his tracking and I am thrilled with what I see so far. We are doing 3-5-7 food. So, 1,2 no food, 3 has food. Then 1-4 no food, 5 food. Etc. I also more than doubled the length, added corners with no food, and added articles...all in the last two weeks. Super happy with our progress. It's not perfect but he's progressing more rapidly and we're both learning.

Step #1- Stomp down a 3ft x 3ft square. Put food in stomped down area, spread it around in that area ONLY. Nothing outside of that box. Put flag in corner and point and tell your dog to "track" Help them find all the pieces if having trouble.

They eat only on the "track", so set out a days worth of food and use it then. If at some point your help isn't helping and they are totally checking out and into something else, pull them away and they get put away and no food later

Do this for daily for a week, then describe to me your dogs behavior or video it and post and we'll see about step 2
