This is a story based achievement. When you complete the Kennsington Gardens apartment area you will automatically go to an area of warehouses by the docks. Instead of Holmes or Watson, you now control a hound who is following trail of the guy who lived in the apartment.

For the most part you just have to wander around and look for evidence of the guy (usually indicated by blue-ish footprints). The trail is not constant, so you will often discover that he went off in a different direction than his footprints last pointed.

There are a number of puzzles you need to solve as the dog, usually to get past a barrier or door. Most include finding a mechanism which has to be triggered. Very briefly they include:

* Getting past a series of pillars in the water: hit the switch in the control room you passed by to find the pillars

* Getting through a large locked warehouse door: Activate the switch to the left of the door then climb onto the lowered crane platform. Go down the stairs and unlock the door for Sherlock

* Prying open the door on the other side of the warehouse: go back and fetch the stick by the door you opened for Sherlock

* Getting over the broken bridge/pier: Once again, find the controls for the crane. On the other side, examine the wheel of the cart on the tracks to get Sherlock over

* Getting into the building on the right: First, climb up the "ramp" of building materials to find an open window. Then go back down and explore the trash at the base of the same building, to the right of the locked door. Once inside find the rope you can interact with to get Sherlock inside.

Once inside, explore the building, looking for ramps you can go up and then back down and then some stairs. Around this point, the scene will "reload" as if in a new area and the achievement will pop (you still control the dog for a bit more).
