Thanks Erynn!

My dogs have mostly only done tracks in the morning, so when I went tracking this week in the evening I kinda went "uh oh", and realized they need more experience on a dry track with harder grass. Its been so freakin hot here that pretty much everything is dry.

I will keep Diego on an easier surface for now, and maybe just do small tracks on the dry grass until he gets more experience. I did track with sardines last week...gross but it did get his attention!

We have a ton of farmland here too, I just don't know any of them that well...and everyone around here has a shotgun lol. Right now I have permission to track in my neighbors field so that will have to do for just sucks when they don't cut the grass for months.

I'll try to get some clips this weekend at the club.
