always on the right track
Tracking-Dog – with this app you are always on the right track
Please note that this app uses continued GPS running in the background. This can dramatically decrease battery life.
The tracking is one of the most ambitious lesson for dogs. To ease the tracking in the future, working-dog created an app which helps dog handlers to localize and document the track and also the items easier. The app shall help and support dog handlers during the practice.
•Recording of the track through GPS
•Show the track on a card with current GPS position
•Capture additional information:
o Items on the track
o Environmental conditions (e.g. weather, time of day, wind direction)
o Capture the environment/ground
•Run a track with your dog
•Save, edit and administrate the tracks
•Capture if the dog found items
•Multilingualism (German, Englisch)
•Weather information will be directly recalled from the weather service and determined on the basis of the position of your track
Thanks for using Tracking-Dog! With regular updates we make our app better for you.
Every update of our working-dog app contains new features and improve reliability and speed.

Ratings and Reviews
Wish it had one more “run” per track
App is generally great. Tracks your path (ish) but can get sporadic if you change the orientation of the phone: I have it on a chest mount and when I bend over to reward/pick up something the track looks like I got the zoomies.
The one feature that really has made me explore other apps is the lack of one las run-through, or repeat a previous track. You record your track, you get to run it once, and I desperately wish there was one more “pick up” that tracked your blue dot to the original path. As it is, you lay, run, and that’s it unless you leave it running and it will go nuts while you’re putting your dog away (see comment about bending over).
So, it does the job. It roughly measures the track while I’m laying, and I haven’t lost anything since using it- although I “pause” the run after the dog finishes to go back and then the time/distance are wrong.
Would pay more (maybe feature unlock) to run a “previously saved track” to pick up markers.
Like the app, but could be better
The track according to the GPS is a little askew, but that is to be expected given changing skies. I am very unhappy that the clock is off by about 3 to 4 hours. I have to detail that separately. Setting articles on the track is difficult, sometimes it does not register. And, there is entirely too much to do while setting and running a track.
The app records setting the track and article locations just fine. Each time I run a track the app will not allow me to save the run saying there was at least one article but found. I’m wearing my phone on my wrist to improve gps and working in open fields. Each article was located and picked up and the app still says articles were not located. I want to be able to save the track the dog has run.
