Prior to the formation of The Tracking Dog Club of South Australia Inc. in 1978 and its running of its first trial in 1980, trials were run only on request by obedience clubs, mostly SA Obedience Dog Club Inc. but also Southern Districts Kennel and Obedience Club Inc. and German Shepherd Dog Club Inc. SAODC ran its first trial in National Park, Belair, on 26th May 1962 with three qualifiers viz. Doug Kemp’s Orpington Marie CDX, John Moroney’s Morny Panda Carmel CD and Jack Trevor’s Prince Regent of Saxony CDX.

Tracking

Tracking is the art of teaching your dog to find people who are lost. You don't have to be very young, or super fit. Neither does your dog. You don't have to have a dog who has excelled at Obedience Classes but it does need to be under effective control at all times. Both you and your dog need an average level of fitness, enjoy walking and are happy to be out in all types of weather. You need to have a bit of spare time. Your dog has plenty and will enjoy sharing it with you. The equipment you will need is a sturdy pair of boots. For rural tracking, a wind and waterproof coat and for urban tracking, clothing suitable for the prevailing conditions. Your dog will need a suitable harness. Please note "No Pull" harnesses are not permitted.
For rural tracking you will need a minimum length of lead of 10metres. For urban track and search you will need a lead of no longer than 2 metres, as per legislated rules in S.A.
You should carry water and a suitable bowl for the dog to drink from. For training some food rewards may be carried but not permitted in trials. A towel and brush is useful if your dog has long hair.

We delight in your success! 
Strive to succeed!
