At the Stokesdale trail I gain the confidence back. One of the search areas was an arena and their had been animals in there prior who had pissed. Dax went in and was easily distracted I hooked her up and she was able to refocus. One the judges noted on our score sheet great job hooking her back up. Well it is easy for me to do that with Dax because she is tall and I am short so we have an advantage.

We earned a third place ribbon out of 28 dogs with two pronounced out of four searches. Need to work on inaccessible hides, handler error in not called two of those type of scent puzzles. One complicated scent puzzle was in an open to the elements, wind blowing, inaccessible under table and within 2 feet around the corner in the brick wall the 2nd hide. Called Alert on the brick hide and Dax was working that table however handler did not call.

Hopefully we will continue this Nose Work journey in the fall

We ended the season doing exactly what I wanted to do, increase our finds and gain the confidence in working large areas off leash
Sounds like you had an awesome trial! Way to go!

I totally hear you...I think they are 100% making the right call, but of course it's disappointing. I think a lot of people think this is going to be over sooner than it actually will. Or, if it IS over sooner, it will be because people actually follow the guidelines! And then we'll all be really happy.

At the end of the day, the competition part of Nosework is just for us, anyway. The dogs don't care. We don't need those ribbons. We have our dogs, and they have us. We can all do Nosework in our backyards while this stuff goes on in the world.

MeadowCat Way to go!

I hear you on trials...the first NW3 that was scheduled in a couple of weeks here in MN was just cancelled. I don't think it's the wrong call, just sad.

scorning Adele earned her NW3 title yesterday with P's in 4 of her 6 searches! She totally blew me away by working in snow when she hates being cold. We had 1 interior search, 1 exterior search, 2 vehicle searches, and 2 container searches. There were no blank areas. This was my second trial under the new NW3 rules, I'm really enjoying the rule changes so far.

Unfortunately this will probably be the last trial in our area for a while due to corona virus, as most of our trials are in schools and schools have all closed in WA state.

It crossed my mind when I saw her name on the line up sheet. I didn't think there'd be any way you'd be all the way up in NC though. It was nice to meet you!!

Meldrew79 I would also check the NACSW site and see if there are any certified instructors in your area.
