Australia's first and second Dual Champions (Tracking)

Prior to 1 January 2000 there was a requirement for a dog to have an obedience pass to enter Tracking trials. This requirement was rescinded with the introduction of the Tracking Champion title. As higher qualifications are obtained, the lower one is no longer used on the dog's name. A dog must be at least six months of age and have passed a Preliminary Tracking qualification test to be eligible to enter a Tracking trial.

 

From 2009 the Track and Search titles (TSD & TSDX) were introduced. These titles provide the opportunity for the dog to continue working past Tracking Champion and to potentially train and trial thus further enhancing their skills by completing a series of graded tests which replicate real life scenarios. These tests are open only to dogs who have achieved the title of Tracking Champion.
