About Tracking track

You may have noticed your dog has a keen sense of smell – 100,000 times stronger than humans – and it makes him naturally “nosey.” That strong sense of smell is the reason why dogs are well suited for emergency search-and-rescue work. Other scent-careers include bomb and narcotics detection in Law Enforcement as well as medical alert service dogs.

So what do you do with your ever-nosey dog? Get him involved in AKC Tracking where he can sniff and smell to his heart’s content and demonstrate his natural ability to recognize and follow a scent. It’s a perfect way for you and your dog to enjoy many hours together, outside in the fresh air, honing his natural abilities.
