Here's the exact text from IPO rules, I'm not sure where I got barking from, that might have been something I heard wrong somewhere. I didn't mention sit as an indication method, that is valid too.

Around about page 128 he details what to do for "Non retrievers" i.e food motivated trackers.

Maybe 8 months or so.

One of the things about tracking I find is that sometimes you have to be willing to step back and do a bit of a reset. I was following the schedule in Glen Johnstons book...

BTW just to keep your excitement up :-) , here's a few (not very good quality) older videos of Maggies tracking work.

The first is tracking on asphalt.

Yes, every few feet at start. My dog quickly learned to skip over the less interesting food drop in favor of the juicy treat at the article.

I trained my dog to track mostly (95%) using techniques from Glen Johnstons book. My dog trialled IPO-1 tracking a few months back and scored 91/100.

I've had similar encounters, probably in same area as you. The first time, Maggie detected the pack long before I could see them and tried to chase them but I recalled her back.

Great, thanks for the info. How important do you think it is to have the articles properly scented (ipo doc says "carried for at least 30 mins by layer") by the blind track layer?

Any idea what...

So what happens if there is only one dog doing IPO2. Is there a draw between several track layers to lay the single track or does the club appoint the layer?

Can the same track layer lay multiple...

Same level participant makes sense. I've never seen a draw for tracks, probably because I haven't seen more than one dog do IPO2 at a time.

Thanks.

IPO-2 Tracking, Track Layer Questions

Who chooses the track layer for IPO-2 tracking? Is the layer chosen from a random pool or can one use the same layer that the dog was trained with?

Can the track layer also be a trial participant?...

That's good to know. Maggie seems to have no physical issue with jumping the height (just mental ones :-)) so I'm hopeful we can work through it.

I don't either because it is too close sounding to the "sthey" command in german which means stand.

If I say sit or down (or sitz or platz) the dog is expected to maintain that position until...

Thanks that's where I'm thinking the solution is. We use this jump as the trial jump, so at least at training I might get away with a different jump.
