So you Want to be a Tracking Judge
Get a jump on your judging journey. Find out how to apply and the steps involved to become a CKC tracking judge. Learn what judges do – from accepting assignments to travel and expenses, to plotting, judging, problem solving and rule interpretation. Judging is fun, and it is also a big responsibility to do it well, with fairness, integrity and compassion
Urban Scent Theory
The moving scent environment! It’s so exciting! But you need to have knowledge and imagination to visualize just what is happening when you walk through an urban setting to lay a track. What does scent look like? How does it travel? Where does it go? Find out how the manmade environment impacts scent flow, and how that is affected by environmental conditions – to become better at plotting, testing and reading your dog – to be a better human partner!
Setting Goals & Training Plans for Success
Planning to enter tests this year? Next year? Learn how successful competitors and athletes plan their training so they are ready and peak on that important day! Find out how to observe and evaluate your dog through stages of training to determine if you should take a step back, move ahead or take a break. Every dog is different, so there is no cookie cutter or timeline. The dog tells you when they are ready to move ahead. Your job? Make your dog the best it can be, through well planned and executed training guided by clear goals.
