What is Clean Boot Tracking? It is what blood hounds do when they are tracking escaped prisoners. It's just like the movies! You're dog can learn too! Any dog can do it.

This course ran for the first time in the UK in 2014, was a great success, and has now been run in various countries around the world. This is ‘real’ tracking where the dog is actually trained to follow the scent of the tracklayer, unlike AKC or UK Kennel Club Working Trials where the dog is not actually trying to find the tracklayer. Clean boot tracking is great fun and much more practical than most forms of competition tracking for both the dog and handler!

As in working trials, the dog is required to follow the track of a person but unlike Working Trials, the dog is not required to take multiple turns on the track - it is much like search and rescue tracking where the dog is actually trying to find the person who laid the track not minute articles that the tracklayer has carefully placed! The culmination of the track is for the dog to reach the end and then identify the person who laid the track from a line up of suspects! It is carried out at a fast walk or slow jog and has much more of a practical purpose than working trials or Schutzhund tracking - both great dog sports in their own right, but this is ...Different!! PLUS lots of fun to train.

Who is this course for? Perfect entry level for anyone wanting enhance nose work. This is a core skill of a man hunter.
