Hi all.

Just missing those mornings when you are laying your track (IPO) in moist grass.

My question is: We like to track then because the track is easy for us to see. BUT, are the dogs "seeing" it too?

I think that depends on the dog and whether they use their eyes or just their nose. I don't see a difference in my dog whether I can see the track or not.

Get down to a dog's level and they do not see the track to the extent that we can.



I used to track in the snow. My first dog I did a lot of straight tracks with her before adding in corners. When I first added corners she would still want to go straight despite the track obviously turning (we were in snow). Then later on with other dogs I would track through the areas in the field where I threw the ball. There were a ton of footprints yet the dogs still followed the track I laid.
