I am wondering what you all would call a good dog tracking wise. What trail do you expect a good track to do?
Do you expect a good dog to track more than .25 mile without any visible blood? Basically just tracking the scent the hooves let off.

What would make a great dog, a one in a lifetime dog .. Let's hear it from everyone's opinion

It's all about drive & motivation. The more motivated the dog is, the harder that dog will work to get what he wants and the more distractions he will tune out to get to that thing.

A dog that is highly motivated is less likely to quit when he gets tired or when he loses the trail. He will work harder and cast out further to pick up a trail, exhibiting range and bottom.

Qualities I look for in a great dog are:
Drive
Grit
Independence
Intelligence
