Spor Flagg/ Rød, gul og Pink
Sturdy tracking flag, which indicates where the trail starts. Very visible, thanks to its bright colour.
On the judge's command, the dog is taken slowly and calmly to the starting point and is set onto the track. The dog is to take the scent at the start calmly and intensely with a deep nose. The dog must then proceed to track with a deep nose, maintaining a steady pace.
