Tracking / Trailing Hounds...
K-9s are trained to follow the path that a lost person has taken. Similar to traditional "tracking" dogs, these dogs require a properly preserved scent article and are not distracted by other people in the area. These dogs work on long leashes. Trailing dogs most frequently work trails that are several days old.
