Ziva ran her 1st regulation track yesterday and it was a total success!!! She ran the entire 675 yards in 20 minutes. We had more articles than regulation, since this girl does not want to waste valuable tracking time showing me the stuff the careless tracklayer dropped. VST tracks need 5-7 turns, 4 articles and are 600 to 800 yards long. This is the college campus at Geneseo state college. If it had been the real thing she would have passed!!!! The yellow line is the tracklayer path and the black dotted is Ziva’s path. this was aged for about 3 1/2 hours. From the time my instructor laid the track to when we ran it, there were cars parked over the track and she had to figure it out, you can see from the lines she did not have much of a problem. There was construction on the site and students everywhere and she just worked thru it all. She is such a good girl and has a great work ethic. This coming week we are going to NH for a VST seminar and they are going to have us use a go pro when we track. We will also get some night tracking experience since most of the June-August tests in our area are held at night because the pavement is too hot for the dogs feet during the day. Carole will finally get to see her video even if it is not shot overhead from a drone!
