Thread: Verweisen; we need an English word.

  1. #1

    Verweisen; we need an English word.

    In German tracking language Verweisen means that, whilst ont he track of a wounded animal, the dog stops and shows its handler that it has found something: blood, bone, guts or whatever from that animal.
    Very useful to give you the certainty that you are on the right track.
    But it would be better to have a word for it in English.
    “Point” is the best Google Translate comes up with but that creates confusion with pointing dogs. Has anybody a better suggestion?

    "Verweisen" is essentially the German form of "advise", as in "the dog advises its' handler that it has found something". That's a bit long-winded, although that's the beauty of the German language. I'd probably go with "confirming the trail".

    Dog is after all confirming you are on the "right track".

    Indicates is what I would use.

    It should be in English and for practical application , INDICATE the dog must indicate , the wound couch -strike point, blood spots etc. So the dog must indicate to the handler on the track what it finds.
    TO STRIVE, TO SEEK, TO FIND. AND NEVER TO YIELD.
