Cules and his friend Gavin went out into the mountains to teach the young hounds some tracking skills. I opted out because it involved hours and hours of walking and running up and down valleys,through thorn bushes and never knowing what the hounds might scare up under your feet! The dogs all have tracking devices on so if one gets lost you have to go find it, that may turn into searching long into the night in dangerous terrain.
On arrival,waiting to have their tracking devices fitted.
Encouraging the Boss!
The tiny white spot in the far distance is where they left the truck!
The kind of terrain to negotiate down in the valleys
Gavin looking to find tracks with the more experienced hounds. Once again the hounds all behaved very well and stayed close to their handlers so no-one got lost!
