Do you know someone who could help? Hollywood
Dog Obedience Club, a non profit club, puts on an annual AKC Tracking Test. These
tests are often used by handlers and dogs that later decide to go on and do
search and rescue work with their dogs. But these tests take space to put
on...lots of undeveloped land. Finding fields in Los Angeles is next to
impossible. We need 200 acres of semi flat (rolling hills and small streams are
fine) land to put on a test. We are holding that test tomorrow, originally it
was supposed to be at Prado Regional Park, but that park is now closed due to
flooding and the watershed dam. (The test has been moved to San Diego this
year.) We would love to find a rancher or farmer with the land to share with us
for testing. Cow or horse pasture would be perfect! Even orchard land would be
fine! We are a leave no trace sport. We walk the area the day before, putting
out flags, which we take away the following day as we set the tracks. All dogs
are always on a long leash. We would prefer it be in Ventura, LA, Orange or
Riverside Counties because we are a Glendale, CA. based club. If you can help,
please contact HDOC at our e-mail link. Thank you for your assistance.
