Tracking Season coming to a close...

Weimaraners have had a wonderful tracking season this year.  It started out with Trackwest hosting a Tracking Day for the Weimaraner Club of WA. It was a huge success with a great turnout and many keen and willing Weimaraner participants! 
The training at Trackwest started out strong - a huge number of participants from our Tracking Day attended the first few training days held at Gnangara Pine Plantation. Unfortunately, as tracking season went on (and got colder and wetter!), a few people dropped off from training, however we still had a good number of Weimaraners training on Saturdays at Gnangara.
By the time the Trials started, we had a good number of Weimaraners who were ready to trial, while many of the beginners were aiming for end of season trials for their first try at the Track 1.
We also had two successful training days for tracking with members of the Weimaraner club who live in the South West Region. Thank you very much to Jennie Oliver and Trackwest for helping out with this event, which was a huge success and was followed up later with another which we thank Carolyn Gale and Jennie Oliver for running.

So far this year, as a result of Tracking Trials, the following Club members and their Weimaraners have gained the following:

Carolyn Gale has gained a TDX with Seamus and a TD for Tallulah (Ch Greydove Bluemoon TD)
Christine Weetman has gained a TD with Matrix
Ellen Cartwright has gained a TD with JT (Belbracon Show Me The Money TD)
Bev and Jodie Auld have gained their TSDX (Track and Search Excellent) with Drift (Tr Ch Gunclip Smokey Jade CCD TSDX ET)

On a side note, it is just wonderful to see many of our Weimaraner Club members who take the time out of training their own dogs to help out by laying tracks on trial days and being part of such a lovely training group that is always willing to help out with each other. It is extremely heartwarming to see such a wonderful bunch of people selflessly help others.  
 
There are only a couple of tracking trials to go for the end of the season. Best of luck to ALL the Club members who have entered their Weimaraners over the next couple of weeks - Marianne with Oscar, and Holly with Winter, plus Carolyn, Christine and Ellen!

There will be more updates to follow.

    Tracking is a great sport for Weimaraners and an easy 'entry' dog discipline for their humans. If you haven't done any other doggy sport with your dog give tracking a try! Weimaraners love to work and they love to use their nose so its really win win
