Show Notes

Welcome to this episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, the podcast that brings you real-life dog training results, and sometimes human training ones too!

In this terrific episode, we're joined once again by rock star elite operational and search dog trainer and seasoned coach, Dave, who is back to share insights and top tips for teaching a dog to track! 

This episode is not just about following scents or finding people; it's a game-changer for every dog at any age and stage, from reactive dogs, sniffy dogs, Naughty But Nice dogs, sports dogs and companion dogs. Dave breaks down the simplicity of tracking, making it accessible for all, from puppies to senior dogs, and owners of any skill level — it’s even fun and accessible for the whole family!

Join us in this episode to discover the fundamentals of getting started with tracking, including creating a scent pad and using positive reinforcement to build your dog's tracking skills. Plus, find out how this engaging activity not only enriches your dog's life but also strengthens the bond between you and your dog.

Tune in now for an engaging discussion on the versatility of tracking, from hunting down criminals and finding vulnerable missing persons, to enriching your dog’s life and unlocking their full tracking potential, no matter their age, size, training history or behaviour struggles!

And while you’re here, please leave a review for us and share your biggest lightbulb moment or inspirational takeaway message with us. Remember, no matter what struggles you might be facing with your dog, there is always a game for that!
