Today, Watson, Ian and I went to an intro to tracking seminar. It was VERY informative, and between classroom-type lectures, we got to work our dogs on actual tracks. All the dogs were beginner trackers, so the tracks were quite straight forward, but last one included an obtuse turn.
Watson was the youngest dog there by several years, remember he's only 5-months-old, and he was spectacular! Our instructor, Kyla Smay kept saying what a "lovely dog" he was. I guess you don't need a "fancy" dog for tracking. :-)
Here are some pictures:
