I’ve only trailed with my lab so this may not help much.

In my very limited time trailing deer I’ve learned to read my dog to know if she’s on the trail or not. Also I’ve had to learn to trust her and follow her verses where I think the deer went. Take the dog on as many tracks as possible for them to get the experience.

Labs are so different. The old lab I am training with her is easy. Unfortunely I am not getting that many tracks. I mostly dog hunt, but sat on a stand every evening to shot something for her to track and have seen a deer to shot.

Zero experience with patterdales but they are an interesting breed. That pup will not fail from lack of grit. Those are some tuff little rascals. Good luck and post up some pics as yall progress.
