Julia competed at her second AKC Scent Work Trial(s) up in Daytona Beach, Florida this weekend. (The weekend consisted of 4 total trials. Julia was in 3 trials). The event was hosted by Obedience Club of Daytona. First, a huge thank you to the host, judges, volunteers, and other competitors. It was a truly fun event. Good job!
In the trials Julia competed in, she titled in Novice B Containers, Novice B Interior and received High In Trial for Novice B Trial 2 Saturday. She racked up two 3rd places in Novice B Containers, 1st and 3rd place for Novice B Interiors, and 2nd place buried in trial 2. After titling in Novice B Containers and Interiors, I moved her up to advanced and she placed 4th in Advanced Containers (No ribbon, we hit the road before results were official) and 5th in Advanced Interior.
She was 7 of 9 over the weekend. The only 2 misses were on the buried hides which are still quite new to us. In a nutshell, we had a blast. It's always great to spend some time with my girl.
Below is a video of her advanced container run. Videos are such an important learning tool. Had I not got hung up on rewarding her for the first hide, we would have been about 6 seconds faster. Good job Julia!!!
