» Tracking

Tracking is a sport in which the basset hound's independence, intelligence, determination, and keen scenting abilities are put to good use. It is not surprising that many bassets excel at tracking, and neither is it surprising that many basset handlers are among the most knowledgeable people in the tracking world. Tracking is a marvelous sport for those who enjoy being outdoors with their dogs, and who marvel at a dog's ability to succeed at tasks which must forever remain an essential mystery to human beings. The teamwork involved in following a dog on a track is an experience that everyone who loves dogs should have.

Craig Green's Tracking Articles

Craig Green (along with his wife Kay) has been tracking with basset hounds for more than two decades. Between the two of them they have seventeen TDs and 5 TDXs, most on bassets. Craig has judged about seventy tracking tests in thirteen different states since 1985 and occasionally offers seminars and training classes. He has been the tracking correspondent for Tally-Ho since 1992 and was the author of the tracking chapter in Peg Walton's book The New Basset Hound (Howell: 1993). In recent years, Craig has also been an enthusiastic participant in the tracking mailing list. All of the following articles were originally published in Tally-Ho and are copyrighted to Craig Green; they may not be reproduced without his permission.
