Re: Raising the Working puppy
I use scent boxes at first. I want to see the pup working the box calmly on a loose line and if they leave the box immediately work their way back to the box. When they are showing this type of understanding I move on to tracks. Scent boxes can be done with even little puppies and by 15 weeks they can be doing short tracks. I usually do this imprinting and then will put them up for awhile until they have gained some mental endurance. Most have been around 10 months.
