Happy news to share - tracking title

Maiya earned her TD (Tracking Dog) title on Sunday!

I didn't think it was going to happen this year because she developed an eye ulcer this fall. But it healed nicely in time to enter one of the last tracking trials of 2012 (in our area). And then we were lucky enough to win a spot in the trial at the drawing.

One of the club members took photos at the trial. Hopefully he captured a good one of Maiya so I can post it when it is available.

We've been taking private lessons since August 2011. Some people might not need a tracking coach, but I could not have gotten this far without one (and, fortunately, we have a great one). Since that first lesson, we've had a total of 26 lessons. Took 2.5 months off during the winter and some time off this summer when it was 90 degrees plus. Also time off for vacations, after her spay, eye injury, etc. We've been training in various locations (forest preserves) and in various lengths and types of cover. Trained in cold, hot, windy and rainy weather. Worked change of cover, tree lines, and crossing animal paths as we got better. Articles we've used: pot holders, stuffed animals, gloves. hats.

From the beginning, we didn't use food on the track except for some treats at the end of the track on top of the article. However, at one point in our training, Maiya started to struggle at turns. So we went back to double-laid tracks at the turns and added treats at the turns for several lessons.

Some notes I took which shows our progression that first summer and fall:

In July 2011, I attended a training workshop where we were able to practice on a few short, straight tracks. Maiya did well so the instructor added a turn to her last track.

Aug. 2011 (first lesson). 3 short (20-60 yards) double-laid tracks and 1 single-laid track.

Sept. 2011: Maiya was sufficiently motivated because she followed the track through a clump of sticker bushes without much/any hestitation.

Oct. 2011: track: 470 yards aged for 40 minutes

Nov. 2011: 413 yards. aged 41 minutes. 4 turns

Dec. 2011: 205 yards. aged 1 hour.

We've been taking Nosework classes for 2 years - which I assume has also helped.

Thank you for that re-cap. I am also a person who would love to have access to a tracking coach. I live in the middle of nowhere and am frankly, floundering.

Having someone to help is sooo good! I mostly practice by myself, but every few months I meet up with my friend who is an experienced tracker and she tells me what to do
