Evening ladys and gents,

I've got a young lab here that I think will make a good tracking dog, he's 20 months old which I suppose I've left it alittle to late, I used my spaniel for years but she died prematurely so didn't bother training the pup for it thinking I had a few years left with the spaniel and then buy bmh. My question is it too late to start him and what is the best way, the spaniel did it naturaly so never trained her. I would be happy to join a training day.

Never too late. a lot of sniffer dogs are taken from the pound at 2+ yrs old.

Don't get hung up on "fashionable" breeds for tracking. Labs will naturalyl follow blood/scent trail, its all about the trainer.
