Component Training for TD and TDU is a complete guide for anyone who wants to succeed on their journey into the dog sport of AKC Tracking and earn an AKC Tracking Dog (TD) or Tracking Dog Urban (TDU) title. Easy to follow but full of important details, much like the tracks laid down for the dogs, this book is an ideal resource for all levels, whether the reader is brand new to tracking or is an experienced handler who is seeking a solution to a problem at test.

The book also highlights two essential tools for success: components and the mental mindset. Presnall believes that success in tracking isn't just a mastery of technical skills, but emphasizes the importance of having a healthy self-image, a belief in your dog, and a desire to have fun outdoors together. In Component Training, each element of the whole track is broken down into components and the author demontstrates how to practice each component separately to build longer tracks with your dog so both teammates have fun and are encouraged by acknowledging what went well with each track. Tracking teams form a relationship unique to other dog sports since in tracking, the handler relies on the dog's superior nose to lead the way. Both ends of the leash have a chance to learn something new.

Excellence in Tracking through Component Training
Successful competitive tracking requires the development of a large number of skills on the part of both the dog and the handler. A dog comes equipped with fabulous scenting abilities but must learn to follow a track in many types of weather, over a variety of surfaces, while encountering all sorts of distractions. A handler must learn how to read his dog, know when to stop and let his dog get back on track, and keep his dog motivated. Author Ed Presnall has developed his Component Training method to help a tracking team break down the dozens of challenges they will face in training in order to achieve the coveted Tracking Dog Excellent title.
