Urban Tracking Seminar
Instructed by Mr. Frank Campbell

• This class is a three day hands on seminar which gives the experienced or novice handler the tools to increase the effectiveness of your k9 on the street. With classroom A-Z on olfactory capabilities, operant conditioning, dog selection, and step by step procedures on how to train a "green" dog from scratch or improve your street dog. We will show you how to motivate and reward your dog for putting his nose down on hard and soft surfaces. Handling techniques including leash handling, reading your dog and working out urban intersections. With 30 years of tracking experience in Florida ‘s most densely populated county, you will be exposed to tried and true methods of training to have a productive k9 team in an urban, contaminated environment. (not all dogs will be able to excel in this class without proper hunt drive and environmental exposure)
