Section A: Tracking

The highest score is 100.

Command with the voice "Seek"

- Keeping the track = 80 points

- 2 items (10 + 10) = 20 points

Search for two objects lost by the handler at a distance of 350-400 steps, along at least 20 minutes of the handler's trail on a 10-meter leash or free.

The trainer's track has two right corners. The expert determines the order of the tracks when taking into account the available trace area. The starting point of the tracks should be well marked with a sign that sticks into the ground to the left of the starting point. After the trainer has been at the beginning of the track for some time, he moves along the path prescribed by the expert and, without interrupting his movement, puts the first object approximately in the middle of the first or second side of the corner. The second item is placed at the end of the track. The one that made the trail is removed a few more steps in the direction straight ahead, then to return back away from the tracks.

The handler can let his dog follow the trail freely or on a 10 meter leash. Both cases are scored the same.

If within 15 min. after approaching the start point of the track, the end of the track is not reached, the expert stops working.

Execution rules

Before laying the trail, the handler must show the objects to the expert. Only household items that are 15 cm long, 5-6 cm wide, 2-3 cm thick can be used.

Items must be handed over to the trainer approximately 15 minutes before they are placed. When laying the trail, the dog must be hiding. The smell of traces, if possible, should not change when the items are laid out. The trainer cannot shuffle or stop. Objects should be laid out not side by side, but on the track.

The trainer goes to his dog and prepares it for work on the trail. After the call, he introduces himself with his dog to the expert and informs if his dog picks up objects or indicates. Both actions at the same time: take and indicate - are wrong. At the direction of the expert, the dog is slowly and calmly brought to the starting point of the track and work begins. Any coercion should be avoided before, at the beginning of trail work and throughout the trail work. When starting work, give the dog enough time to trace. Anything that creates the urge to dash forward should be avoided.

The dog should calmly take the trail with the lower instinct. When the dog starts to follow the trail, the handler continues to stand and allows the prescribed 10m leash to slide over the arm. He follows his dog and maintains a distance of about 10 m even when the dog is free. If the dog finds an object, then it (without any influence from the trainer) must immediately take it or show it convincingly. When picking up an object, the dog can stop, sit down or come up to the trainer. Any forward movement with an object or taking it while lying down is wrong. The indication can take place by laying, planting or stopping. The handler drops the leash and goes straight to his dog. He raises the object high, indicating that the dog has found him. After that, the trainer with the dog continues to work on the trail.After completing the tracking work, the items should be shown to the expert.

The trainer is allowed to approach the dog that took the object. Further forward movement of the dog with the apparatus is a mistake.

The leash, if not released from the hand of the trainer, can sag. It can be attached to a chest harness for searching or, if not applicable, to a collar. The right to search freely remains.

The use of a free additional belt is not permitted. The presence of a leash is the right of the trainer.

The designation of the direction signs is not an error.

If the handler deviates from the track for a distance greater than the maximum length of the leash, then stop working.

If the dog leaves the trail, but is held by the handler, the expert encourages him to follow the dog; in case of repetition, work is stopped.


Erroneous setting on the track, barking, frequent whirling around corners, prolonged cheering, indistinct taking or pointing, dropping an object are punishable by withdrawal of up to 4 points. Repositioning on the trail, strong barking, movement on the trail with predominantly upper sense, feverish movement on the trail, emptying, catching mice, and the like, result in a score of up to 8 points. Up to 4 points can be deducted for an incorrectly taken or incorrectly indicated item.

10 points are deducted for each item not found. 4 points are deducted for taking or pointing to a thing that was not laid by the one who laid the trail.
