I use a synthetic regulation length line. It is narrow, maybe 1/2 . It doesn't really get tangled. I like it a lot; it doesn't hold water so you don't have to. Worry about it not drying b4you use...

I'm laying my own tracks only because I don't have anyone else to do it for me. Since I want to go further than basics in tracking, I will have to eventually find someone to lay tracks for me.

I like that, "Track what?":)

I took advantage of a little rain and tracked 2x earlier this week. I did notice an increase in speed where I had minimal food. Hope to work on that tommorrow.

and perhaps you could move back to just working articles off the track( the long track, anyway) and tightening your criteria with the clicker. Now he must be looking down the track, etc. You will...

Can you try being right beside him at the article so he can't turn his body? Maybe even a hand on his flank so he can't start to swing out? Just for a time or two until he gets the message.

I think forward is one of the first concepts the dog grasps. If I go a distance with no food, then I will put several pieces as a little jackpot. So, while the dog may or may not take a half-step...

LOL. Now I didn't say every week.;) I think when it's new and fresh, one probably does it more than the more experienced person who is more confident in their abilities.

Sounds like your frequency is really good. One of my tracking partners has limited space at her house so when she comes to the field, she may occasionally just lay one really long, straight track.

That's exactly how it was explained to me. It "sets the behavior" of moving the head side to side, keeping head down. So, it wasn't so unusual for me to keep so much food down. I had very...

Go ahead; I don't care. That track was 3 legs of around 70 or so paces. The flags are at start, turns, and finish. A ton of food (rolled food in pinky-nail sized pieces) with spaces of 3-5 steps...
