    Tracking Results from Belgium

    Just received the results from last year’s tracking fromRudi van Kets’s tracking group, vlaamse zweethondengroep . The members have to complete a detailed form each time they complete a track.
    As is to be expected it makes for interesting reading.
    A few figures:
    170 wounded animals were tracked as well as 50control searches, 112 roe, 45 wild boar and 11 stags.
    Excluding the control searches 58% of the Game was found.
    Bavarians with 33% and Hanoverians with 30% did most of the tracking but 2 Slovenski Kopov’s, a breed we hardly know here,found 29% of all the Game.
    29% was found within 100 yards, 26% within 200, 24% within 500 and 10% above 1KM.
    Front leg and stomach were the most prevalent wounds.
    12% was tracked without there being any blood.
    42% were tracked within 4 hours, 35% within 4-12hours, 20% between 12-24 hours and 3% of the tracks were older than 24 hours.

    All this with 28 members, an impressive result.

    Impressive results for 28 members
    Did all 28 take part or did some do more than others?
    Impressed with the Kopovs as well
    Be a good idea to set something like Rudi's group up over here,test dogs and handlers before being allowed to participate

    Yes, you bet. 3 of them did more than half, 10 did most of it but what I do not know is the exact ages of the dogs. I know some of them are just over 12 months.

    Not certain how many people would like the creating of a tracking group. Rules would have to be quite strict.

    1 Only dogs with approved papers of known tracking breeds.
    2 Long term aim to be affiliated to the ISHV, the international tracking Society.

    Should I put up a post?

    I think it would be a great idea,it gets dogs and handlers up to certain levels and can also help people out when they run into problems with their dogs or tracks etc
    Need time and commitment from those who are in it
    Novice test for dogs up to 12 months
    Advanced test for dogs after that age if ready for it
    A test for the handler would be beneficial too me thinks
    Yes Baron put up something to give people an idea
