The German Pinscher is not only an unusually intelligent companion, he is also a very impressive tracking dog.
To earn the beginning level AKC Tracking Title, Tracking Dog, TD, a dog has to follow a track that is laid by a stranger (to the dog), through a vegetated area for about 450-500 yards. The track is 30 minutes to two hours old and will usually have about 4 turns. There will be a glove or wallet of the tracklayer at the end of the track which the dog must find.
fun and rewarding
Tracking is an excellent activity for dogs of all ages.
A dog that has successfully completed all three tracking titles (TD, TDX and VST) earns the prestigious title of Champion Tracker. The advanced tests can be very demanding on both the dog and handler, but the training for it is so much fun!
