Expanded Description:

Excellence in Tracking through Component Training
Successful competitive tracking requires the development of a large number of skills on the part of both the dog and the handler. A dog comes equipped with fabulous scenting abilities but must learn to follow a track in many types of weather, over a variety of surfaces, while encountering all sorts of distractions. A handler must learn how to read his dog, know when to stop and let his dog get back on track, and keep his dog motivated. Author Ed Presnall has developed his Component Training™ method to help a tracking team break down the dozens of challenges they will face in training in order to achieve the coveted Tracking Dog Excellent title.

You will learn:
• To watch for “something different,” the subtle clues your dog gives you while tracking, so you can react in a way to help your dog.
• All of the rules and regulations you need to know in order to compete in TDX.
• Specific training plans for start, obstacle and transition components you will encounter in TDX.
• To not be the “dope on a rope,” but rather an active partner with your dog while tracking.
• What to expect when encountering different types of ground cover and weather.

Praise for Component Training for TDX
Ed’s book brings the owner up to speed and gives you homework that will keep your dog interested AND learning AND still making it fun for both of you! I have watched more people cause their failure in a test so that I agree with Ed that 95% of the dogs failing a tracking test, do so due to the handler. With this book, you can increase your chances of passing significantly!
Mary Thompson, AKC Tracking Judge

The success I have enjoyed in tracking with my Dalmatians is directly attributable to the wealth of knowledge I have taken from Ed Presnall’s seminars and training manuals. He is the undisputed source of solid information and effective technique.

Disappointing, April 21, 2012
Reviewer: Kathy
I was really looking forward to this book, since I liked Ed's VST books so much. I think he does a good job of listing all the components of a TDX test, but I was disappointed in the lack of information about how to train for them. For example, there is little or nothing said about crosstracks, which is a major cause for failure with many dogs. His comments about weather are merely to train in different kinds of weather rather than how different types of weather effect a dog's ability to scent.
After reading this, I went back to my Sil Sanders book and read what he has to say about TDX training. I feel like I got better information in that book which is mainly about TD training. I'd say borrow a friends Component Training for TDX before you decide to buy.
