Blake (Dux x Pala) earned his NW1 from the National Association of Canine Scent Work this past Saturday in Toledo. He had to find 4 hides – interior, exterior, vehicle and containers. He even received “Pronounced” on 2 of the hides. My instructor says that’s really good. I’m new at this, I’ll have to look it up. It is so much fun watching them work a scent. The judge’s note that made me the happiest was, “Great team work. Nice praise by you to the dog. He loved it.” It brought a tear to my eye. That is what it’s all about!!
Ginger went along for the ride because you can only enter one dog in a trial.
