Copper the Golden Retriever’s first track

The other week I convinced my darling wife to do some tracking work with me and our 6 year old Golden Retriever, Copper. Copper is a goof ball. My wife affectionately calls him the Golden Oaf. Since he loves us so much, I knew we could channel his desire to be with us into some tracking and the video below is the result.

As you can see in the video, Copper wasn’t exactly sure what I was asking of him when he initially started. I think he was wondering why I didn’t want him in a nice heel position. After some reassurance, he started tracking with gusto. He hasn’t figured out that he should put his head down. He is still looking for her visually but he’s on the right track. Ha.
