I was curious as to the differences between SAR tracking and Schutzhund tracking training. Does anyone know? I have always been interested in SAR and the club I am going to trains for that also. It isnt something I am going to get involved in now, there is much other training to do, but maybe eventually.

Thanks,

Thom

Hey - did you end up with the Absolute K-9 or somewhere else?

Schutzhund tracking is footstep to footstep tracking. The dog is required to track with a DEEP nose...meaning the dog should have his nose down to the ground the whole time, concentrating on the scent on the disturbed ground. As far as I know (and I have no experience with this) but I believe SAR is more air scenting. I belive it would take an entirely different approach in training these 2 styles of tracking. I could probably answer your questions regarding SCH tracking but maybe do a google search on the SAR stuff? I can't really help you there but I do know its totally different than SCH tracking.

Yeah, I read a bit about SAR tracking and it requires both. Tracking and Searching (air scenting). I was just curious as what the main difference was between training for the two types of tracking, if there any.

We went to Upper Bucks Working Dogs. It was more of a club atmosphere and more of what we were looking for.
