Quote:Tracking seems awesome as well, but a concern b/c I have Rally & Agility dogs & worry this may cause them to want to sniff all the time.
gotcha! I can't say as I don't do either of those things (would love to though!) but I would think it wouldn't transfer over if the dog knows when its tracking time versus agility time. I'm thinking when we go out and do OB the dogs know its OB time versus when we head out tracking and they know its time for that, especially once they get the idea of association (eg the tracking line comes out when they come out of the crate etc).

But keep us posted with how things go and what route you decide to take!
