Tracking Dog Training

At Zehfuss K-9 Training Center, we provide professional tracking dog training classes to enhance your dog's scent detection abilities. Led by our experienced dog trainer, Matthias Zehfuss, our comprehensive tracking program teaches dogs to follow specific scents and identify designated articles with effective training methods.

Tracking Classes

  • Line Tracking: Dogs learn to follow a scent trail left by a person or object, navigating various terrains and environments with accuracy.
  • Scent Detection and Discrimination: Dogs develop their scent detection skills, distinguishing between different scents and identifying target odors with proficiency.
  • Article Identification: Dogs are trained to locate and indicate specific articles, such as a billfold or other objects, associated with the tracked scent.
  • Step-By-Step Tracking: Through structured exercises, dogs learn to methodically track scents, following each step of the trail to its conclusion.
  • Pursuing Specific Scents: Handlers guide dogs to pursue scents identified from uncontaminated scent articles, enhancing their tracking abilities in real-world scenarios.
