IPO is completely obedience based, deep nose and footprint to footprint track is judged...no air scenting or air check allowed, points are taken. It isn't 'natural' but all based about obedience to the track and not really about the dogs natural instinct., IMO. I WILL NEVER bang on Karlo for this...he is a great tracking dog, even if he will never be on the podium, he knows a track and will always do what it takes to find 'it' even though it is just a ball, just a floppy or just a fox tail.
