Sport tracking is sweeping the world as the newest hobby for dog owners to enjoy. For current or aspiring dog trainers, this is a business opportunity that will keep your initial obedience clients coming back for years. There is simply no better residual business model for dog trainers than the GAK9 Sport Tracking. Think about it, you train the client dog to an excellent level of obedience and they are completely satisfied and leave you great reviews. But, you probably won’t see them again until they get another dog. That can be years down the line. What if we could offer you a training program that could keep your dog training clients coming back week after week….for years!? Well, the GAK9 Sport Tracking Program may be the ticket!

We can train you in the tracking method that has proven to be incredibly successful on every continent. GAK9 Founder and Police K9 Trainer Jeff Schettler, trains police departments and Search & Rescue groups world wide. The author of four books on the subject as well as countless magazine articles on the art of tracking has made Jeff the go to resource for police and military tracking dogs. No other trainer in the world today trains more tracking dogs than Jeff and he has now brought his program to the general dog training industry. Not only has it been incredibly popular but lucrative as well for Jeff’s trainers around the world. Take a look at our impressive list of trainers across the globe:
