The age of the trail is defined as:
The period of time from when the trail was starting to be laid to when the canine is started on the same trail.
Commit to memory these distances:
1/4mile = 440 yards=402.3 meters
1/2mile=880 yards=804.7 meters
3/4mile=1320 yards=1207.0 meters
0.6 miles=1093.6yards=1000meters=1 kilometer
The principle rule of the trail layer is:
"I will know the exact location of the trail at all times."
Failure to follow this rule will result in drastic and detrimental problems in trailing training including:
# The canine being corrected when following trail scent.
# The canine being praised for being off of the trail.
