I started doing dog tracking with my female Germen Shepherd dog in 2010. Initially I tried to find a dog trainer near me but I couldn’t find one.
As I have no experience in dog tracking I decided to purchase a few good rated books from local and online bookshops and give it a go myself. I thought by reading these books I could achieve a better understanding of how dogs track and how I can assist them. However I was wrong. Those books were over my top and I couldn’t even get started. It took me almost 6 months to find someone from a dog obedience club to help me start tracking training with my dog.
Recently I found Kris’ new tracking book “How to achieve precision tracking with your dog” and it totally opened my eyes. This book shows how to apply positive reinforcement to do the marker, tracking scent discrimination and E collar training with tracking. Until now I have not seen any tracking books other then this book applying modem theories and technologies in dog tracking.
One of the best things about this book is it provides readers step by step instructions in tracking methods and they are very easy to follow. If I were to find this book 2 years earlier it would have saved me a lot of time training my dog.
I believe this book will help a lot of beginners like me training their dogs tracking as a hobby. It will also help tracking dog trainers or people who are serious about tracking dog competitions to achieve their goals. This is a book not to be missed!
