AKC Scent Work Trials - DeLand, Florida

Brilliant day today for Julia at the AKC Scent Work Trial(s) hosted by Central Florida Agility Club in DeLand, Florida. A big shout out to the host, judges, volunteers, and competitors. Such a fun time!

Julia titled in both Novice B Exterior and Novice B Buried. Her runs consisted of a 1st place (Buried Trial 1), two 2nd places (Buried Trial 2 & Exterior Trial 2), and a 3rd place (Exterior Trial 1). Top it all of with a High In Trial (Trial 2). Super proud of her!!!

Special thanks to Bad Azz Dogz for the photos!

Julia Goes For Her NW3

Been awhile since I've checked in. Since Logan passed away last year, I've stepped back a tad from photography and engaged with my other dog Julia. During Logan's illness, she kind of took a backseat. 

Prior to moving to Florida, Julia and I were involved in the sport of canine nose work, also known as scent work. We have competed with the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW). Julia has her NW1 and NW2 titles. Before leaving California, we tried for her NW3 title but weren't ready. We came up way short.

Just last month we competed in the NACSW NW3 down in Tequesta, Florida. Again, we fell short but improved tremendously. We found 6 of 9 hides for 72.92 on the day. Not enough to tile (100.00 needed) but a fun day none the less. We were successful in the containers and vehicles. We missed 1 hide on the interiors and 2 hides on the exteriors. Always a learning experience. We'll get em' next time. Very proud of my girl.

Below are video's of our searches that day. Interiors were not filmed. We'll be competing in the AKC Scent Work Trials in Daytona Beach, Florida next month.
