Keep Track of Your Dog in the Field
Depending on the type of scent detection work you are doing, you may want to invest in a GPS system to track your dog in the field. Knowing your dog’s work pattern can be an invaluable handler training tool. We have personally used this rugged Garmin product and had great results. Using the resulting track, you can see how and when your dog is working scent or engaging in unwanted behaviors such as crittering or following distractions.
