Thread: European tracking associations

  1. #1

    European tracking associations

    Seeing as how I am unable to get out with my dog while she has her pups, I am looking to do a bit of further reading on different tracking systems, tests, methods etc used on the continent.

    With this in mind, I would be grateful if anyone who is either a member of one of these groups or knows the relevant details could post a web link to the association / society so I can peruse their articles and forums.

    Pros and cons of each are of course welcomed but please don't turn this into a bum fight over which system is best, people can make their own minds up about which they prefer.

    Blue touch paper comes to mind !!!!!!
    I think you might have to get the marigolds on and give your dog a hand.
    Do you know what nemesis means? A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent, personified in this case by a 'orrible c@#t, me.

    Yeah, I know that's why I mentioned not turning it into the usual, everyone's welcome to their own opinion/s.
    I'm just looking for some ideas to try when the litter is gone, give her something else to try.

    Hi David!
    I really hope, this thread stays the way it started....
    For me, as a bloodhound holder here in Germany, who has worked different dogs of different breeds only (first advice!) on wounded game as deer and boar, its not a matter of the breed.
    Its mainly about the training and tests you do, to secure a good performance of your team (second advice) when needed.
    So, the requirements, with of course some differences and variaties from breed to breed and club to club should be something like the ability

    to follow a track, laid with scent shoes and claws from deer or boar, which is about 20 hours + old
    which holds less or about than 100 ml on blood from the animal you took the claws from
    which presents a total length of about 1000 meters
    which hit all kind of terrain,
    which made some angle or turns
    which has a period without any blood to point out.

    You should know, how to train your dog for some test like this, here are a lot of experts and threads about this theme, so it should be easy for you to get some ideas. If need helped: Email me by pm, and I will try my best....
    If german links do help, check for the tests standards here:

    Prüfungsordnung SSH


    Hirschmann | Schweißhundführung

    Sorry, all in German....

    I wish you the best on training and working your dog!
    People's hobbies are more their measure's than are their jobs.
