Price: $6.50 Add this item to my cart.

Expanded Description:

Based on John Rice's extensive experiences with his all Golden Retriever Police K-9 unit, this approach to tracking focuses on the relationship between dog and handler, and an understanding of scent from the dog's point of view. Find out why variable surface tracking is not the ultimate goal - but the very best starting point! Learn why food on the track confuses dogs. Discover the perfect tracking field - in your own neighborhood. Track anytime, in almost any weather.

Not a how-to recipe book, Following Ghosts offers a revolutionary and challenging look at tracking, canine abilities and ways to help you and your dog reach your tracking goals. Whether you're a tracking novice or an experienced tracker, this booklet will change your thinking.

Find out why tracking judges like Ted Hoesel (the first VST judge), Search & Rescue Units, police departments & others are not only recommending this book, but buying it for their students as "required reading"!

Excellent!, September 13, 2006
Reviewer: Tammy Kinkade
Great insight into the relationship between a dog and his nose - and the differences in the way we humans perceive tracking vs. how a dog does. If you are at all interested in learning this activity, whether for sport, S&R or just for fun, this book is a great guide that not only gives hints and tips on how to, but also gives plenty of perspective on why a dog scents the way he does. Excellent!
 
A must have!, March 20, 2006
Reviewer: Claudia Clifton
This booklet is a must have for everyone, beginner to advanced tracker, for sport or practical tracking like SAR or trailing.
Not a how-to-book, but a book that will give one fresh ideas on how things work and how the dog tracks.... Takes the complicated thinking of humans out of the tracking equation!!!!

I need more of those books for everybody I am training with!
