I was lucky enough to catch-up with some old friends and spend the day with TVP out on a puppy assessment day. I observed the pups introduction to hard surface tracking using SIAB – scent in a bottle (which we will cover in a separate article)
I also watched the pups being put through environmental tests, introduced to early stages searching and looking for a very odd man hiding in the bushes!!
The day was very enjoyable, informative and was also spent in the company of some very dedicated and enthusiastic puppy walkers without who’s help puppy schemes would be almost impossible.
