    Step-by-Step Guide

    This book gives you the basics for learning and teaching AKC Tracking. It tells you how to get started and how to avoid pitfalls inexperienced handlers may face. The book focuses quite a bit on the handler's skills, not just training the dog, as a large responsibility of the team is with the handler. Step-by-step direction are given for the skills the handler needs. Then, the book goes into how to start training the dog.

    The author takes you through her journey of tracking training and titling with her own dogs, giving you a real-life example of training processes and goals.

    A Must Have Book!!

    This is an excellent book for the in's and out's of tracking. Both beginners and people that are competing will find this book very helpful from rules and regulations to what equipment to buy. The Author filled the book with wonderful personal stories of her and her Tervs. She also has many helpful hints or different solutions for problems that may arise.

    She takes you through how to lay tracks, how to start a puppy tracking, keeping a log book of your progress and how to read your dog's body language. It is a very enjoyable book, nicely written with great attention paid to detail. There are also many beautiful pictures to enjoy of her Tervs tracking.

    A great job for Author's first book! Highly recommended to anyone interested in tracking.

    It Made Sense !

    This book provided needed motivation for both my dog and I to start and continue tracking. It has something for both seasoned trackers as well as beginning trackers. Great Book, well written in a plain easily understood way. Even young people can understand and follow it.
