Hi, I hope I am not an intruder? I am very interested in any opportunities for tracking my dog. I have a 10 year old Weimaraner who is one of the top tracking dogs in the UK, having both a TDex and an FH2 as well as passing the BMHS aptitude test.
Various people have said that the best way forward is to get some practical experience, so I am posting here to see if anyone can think of an opportunity.
I am not a dilletante, or a fair weather dog owner. I live in Wiltshire but will travel most anywhere to learn and progress.
Welcome Aboard Allyson
Quite an interesting intro
you should fit right in
Hi Allyson and welcome to the site, lots of good info in deer dog section, is your weimarner tracking human scent ? if so i would imagine the transition to tracking deer blood and deer scent would be quite easy.
dont know where you are wilts ? but you cant be that far away from me, if i can help you can pm me.
"Old dog , new tricks" - thinking out loud.

I can't believe that you don't like antes (nobody into gambling)? LOL But I am not an anti, or an ant or even an aunt.
I live in Calne, between Chippenham and Swindon.
