Blu is leaving his paw prints all over town as he continues his tracking training. These practice sessions are helping him distinguish human scent in different outdoor settings, a skill that will soon make him a "top dog."
On Saturday, Blu tracked 500 yards, his longest distant yet. He was able to identify the smell through grass, asphalt, and concrete. It is imperative for a Bloodhound to recognize a specific smell over common terrain. If not, the dog would hit a road block, slowing down the recovery of a missing person.
Officer Savage says he's impressed with his pup. They grow up so fast!
