Canine Trailing Class at Harris Lake Park Starting on July 22, 2021 at 6:30 PM

Ready For The Ultimate Game of Hide and Seek with your Dynamic Dog? Then this is the class for you.

TRAILING is another great opportunity to challenge you and your dog and take your dog’s education to a new level.  A dog’s olfactory nerve makes up to 30% of the dog’s brain.  It is this inherent skill that we will use and train during this five week trailing class.


  • Week One – Educate Owners / Guardians on what trailing is and how to effectively use the equipment needed. We will do a demonstration of hot trails and start each student on a hot trail.
  • Week Two – Review the work done in week one, cover any questions and reinforce training on hot trails with additional trail exercises.
  • Week Three – Start with a demonstration of a warm trail and start working on warm trails by engaging each student on a warm trail.
  • Week Four – Build on what we learned in week three and continue to work on warm trails.
  • Week Five – Continue to work on warm trails and graduation! Celebrate dog’s progress.
  • Equipment – All dogs will always be under the control of their Owner / Guardian or Instructor. Dog will wear a harness at all times and will be using a long leash of between 30 and 50 feet, depending on the exercise.
  • A high value treat or toy will be used in the training exercises to encourage and reward the dogs.


Upon successful completion of this class, you and your dog will have mastered the following:

  1. Finding a person hidden on a hot trail.
  2. Finding a person hidden on a warm trail.
