If your group or club want a Spiritdance tracking seminar this is the one! We all start in urban environments now. Let’s do it with greater knowledge! If you are a keen urban competitor this workshop will give you ideas and insights into urban moving scent.
And if you are a new or aspiring Tracking Judge at the urban level you would find this workshop very helpful for plotting and for understanding what’s happening on the track!
These workshops are an idea I’ve developed over time focused on how to help people understand and train in he urban environment successfully – beginners and advanced.
The exercises I’ve designed will be enlightening and practical and will be all about predicting scent flow, plotting for success and article placement using urban concepts. Dogs will demonstrate our predictions to test our knowledge, in a series of short exercises in a variety of scenarios, locations, times and track ages.
The exercises are sure to bring out our inner geeks!
Everyone will also prepare their own scent maps! I’ve been studying Urban Scent for 12 years now and use my ideas to train and also to plot for tests when I judge. I love to watch dogs on test tracks handling challenges and shining when they are in flow.
Thank you to all of the wonderful trackers – students and friends – who have filled and practically over filled both June Urban Scent Tracking Workshops in Olds and Medicine Hat!!
I’m so honoured to have people attending from Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, and Medicine Hat. This is the first time I’ve filled a seminar in the Hat too. I love to work with such passionate people and am looking forward to these seminars. They will be fun!
Once I nail down the format I hope to offer more. I think it will be a workshop I can give anywhere in the future and a real “Spiritdance” brand! (Like my own Stinky Feet Workshop!)
Thanks guinea pigs, I mean trackers! It will be awesome!
