Welcome

Welcome to the Tracking Club of Victoria.  We are a club that is passionate about tracking with our dogs.  Join us!  All dogs can track (follow a scent trail).  If you want to learn more the club holds an annual workshop weekend where you can learn everything you need to get started.

See you out on the track - but be warned tracking is addictive!

latest news

The Tracking Club of Victoria (TCV), has had to regretfully cancel the very popular Weekend Workshop for 2020due to the Covid19 Pandemic. 

While the cancellation of the event is out of our control, your hard-working team is doing their best to help you gather training information and keep in touch.

The TCV is offering a four (4) week “Introduction to tracking” course, with a possible extension of another two (2) weeks if there is enough interest. Obviously, it can’t replace the actual TCV Workshop Weekend.

The camp, the campfire, the spit roast, the amazing camaraderie. Meeting new friends etc. Hugging and kissing.  We just can’t do that right now. We are offering you a short online course for members.

It is the best we can do, given the circumstances. The course is intended for beginners.  We are experienced tracking people, but this is the first time we have ventured onto online lessons. Just like our kid’s classroom teachers, we have had to adapt.   Please be kind to us.

The lessons will be approximately 60 minutes including question time. We intend to offer the event via ZOOM. There will be instructions emailed out to link you into the program shortly.

The courses will run as follows:
First Course:  Thursday 28th May 2020 at 8pm
Second Course:  Thursday 4th June 2020 at 8pm

Third Course:  Thursday 11th June 2020 at 8pm

Fourth Course:  Thursday 18th June 2020 at 8pm

In addition, the TCV have asked around re online courses and Scent Dogs Australia is offering our TCV members a very generous $10 discount on their courses. 

Information regarding these courses will be sent out to all members to enrol if they wish and more information on this offer will be available soon.  

Also, the TCV Committee has approved a one off $10 subsidy if you elect to undertake one of the courses on offer.
