Tidewater Tracking Club of Virginia
Who We Are and Meet Some of our Members
Debbie ~ Norfolk, VA
About Me:
I started tracking for fun with my two
retired obedience dogs around 2003. They
enjoyed it, but were never quite able to pass the
test. The third time was the charm with my current
dog Rusty, who earned his TD at 2 years old. He
has since earned the Obedience and Agility
awards that entitle him to be called a Versatile
Companion Dog. I am also proud to say that Rusty
came from Lab Rescue.
Tracking since: 2003

Joanna ~ Newport News, VA
About Me:
I started tracking in 2001. I earned my
first TD with Dolly in February, 2002. I had owned
her for less than a year! Rocket earned his TD in
April 2009 handled by junior club member Ty.
Rocket is currently working towards his TDX. After
the deaths of Dexter and Dolly, Rocket was lonely.
We have recently adopted a yellow Lab named
Missy. She is looking forward to tracking this fall, but
in the meantime, she is hard at work keeping the
yard squirrel and mole free!
