Default good tracking theory book / videos?

Hi all,

So I've been getting pretty heavily into SchH in the past few years and love it. I spent a lot of time working with helpers and excellent trainers (IMO) and have learned a ton about drives, rewards, timing, proper corrections, and training techniques.

I realized that where my knowledge is lacking the most though, is tracking.

I obviously don't know as much about OB and protection phase theories as someone who has been involved for years but relatively I really know the least about tracking theory.

I would love some recommendations... any good books on the topic? Any good videos you can recommend (I have bowwowflix subscription so I can get many things)? Any websites or specific trainers I should seek out?

I basically want to learn a lot of the theory behind nose-work, more specifically for FST (i.e. schutzhund style tracking) but would also appreciate a good resource about tracking in general.

Thanks!

I just got the leerburg dvd on tracking and so far everything looks great. Old quality video but not the information.

I like the book "Tracking: From the beginning" by Gary Patterson. I got a lot out of it and still read a relevant section from time to time.

I just started reading "tracking Dog - Theory and Method" it's fairly dry reading but very informative and great step by step instructions. Tracking Dog 1997: Theory and Method : Paperback : Glen R. Johnson : 9780914124047

This is the book I have, and the one I would recommend.
