Julia Completes Her AKC Scent Work Advanced Interior Title

Julia and I had a fun weekend attending the AKC Scent Work Trials hosted by the Obedience Club of Daytona in Daytona Beach, Florida. The weekend consisted of four nose work trials over two days.

We competed in Advanced Interiors, Advanced Buried and Excellent Containers. Over the two days of trials Julia completed her Advanced Interior Title. She was two for two in Advanced Interiors, two for two in Advanced Buried and two of four in Excellent Containers taking 4th place in one of the container searches.

Below is a video that a friend took of our first Advanced Buried run. Julia seemed to take her time in finding the hides but perhaps she was just being thorough.☺In the end she cleared the area before time expired and that’s what counts. I am super proud of my girl. I was quite surprised by the spectators reaction when I called finish. Such a fun sport.

Julia Earns Her USCSS Detection Dog Classic Novice Title

Fun weekend at our first United States Canine Scent Sports trial in Cocoa Beach, Florida hosted by the Canine Star Training Academy.

Over the weekend Julia achieved her Detection Dog Classic Novice Title and her Novice Exterior Element Title. DDN Classic Title results for Julia were - 1st place containers, 1st place exterior, 3rd place vehicles and 4th place interior.

Saturday didn't go as planned but we regrouped and worked it again on Sunday. No matter what venue, location or level, there's always something to learn.

Thanks to the hosting facility of Canine Star Training Academy, Judge Marilyn Hulme, Chief Search Designer Natalie Duberow, all the volunteers and other competitors. (Seemed like it was only raining in Cocoa Beach over the weekend huh?)
