Face coverings, especially face masks, are required for everyone in the GKCDTC building. The latest info from the CDC states that face masks are more effective than face shields at containing and reducing the spread of respiratory particles in the air.
The GKCDTC Tracking Committee held a successful Tracking Workshop for six Novice Handler/dog teams on May 24th at the Litton Center Smithville, MO.
Tracking Dog – TD and Tracking Dog Excellent – TDX tests
GKCDTC held its 65th Tracking Dog Excellent test and 79th Tracking Dog test on Sunday, November 3rd, at Smithville Lake. The tracking gods smiled on everyone and gave them lovely weather both Saturday for plotting and Sunday for the test. There were three successful teams in the Tracking Dog test. There were no passes in the Tracking Dog Excellent test, but their day is coming. Many thanks are due to the judges for working hard to put in very nice tracks. Thank you to all club members and friends of the club who stepped up to make these events happen and those stinky track layers who made it possible to have four TD and four TDX tracks available. Tracking tests are a labor of love and thanks are due to the club and all the “friends of tracking” for allowing tracking participants to pursue their passion!
Our successful teams:
