Tried out Barn Hunt and Brush Hunt with the Pinschers

Took Nadia and Vanya in blind today - no prep at all, no introduction for either them or myself. We tried out Barn Hunt and Brush Hunt!
Both girls got their first Q in Barn and earned their Instinct Title in the process! Vanya was 1st in her group and Nadia was 4th (just behind her littermate who was 3rd!)
Nadia came in 2nd of her group for Brush but did not get her Q (I wasn't aware how the rules differed in Brush and I'm a little peeved because even the judges said she found it immediately. However the dog has to mark the find to the judge's satisfaction - except instead of marking initially, she found it, pointed then came back to see mom to tell me she found something. And this was in the judge's own words. She did end up doing a superb marking at the end but by then too much time had passed. Play bow + Bark)

Vanya having been a mouser marked pretty subtly and not to the Judges' satisfaction. (She too froze and pointed, then she started shoving the hay in front of the tube back over it as if to bury her find, something she has often done at home.)
