My instructor is letting me come into their class sessions every now and then during these 7 weeks to keep Dax working. He said that I can do vehicle homework during this time. So-o-o tonight we did out first odor vehicle homework at a park in the parking lot with lots of distractions. I did not think there would be that many people around. We worked about 20 minutes with much higher value treats (roast beef). She had breaks in the car. I started using the roast beef about 2 weeks ago because if you read my previous posts Dax would sometimes lose interest and stop working. That has not happened since I switched from hot dog pairing to roast beef pairing. Anyway she rocked it on the vehicle searches. Went right to work, hunting, locating, tracking and arriving at the hide. We started out with one tin, then 3 tins, finally 5 tins. We finished with an easy one tin hide. I could see her working the hide due to the wind. Great night for team Dax. I was proud of my girl.
Hmm, maybe we'll try roast beef

Are you still pairing food with scent? Or searching for just scent?

Brandy likes roast beef as well. I always use it just for trials though, to keep it extra special.

Brandy and I earned our L1E element title this weekend in IL! This is the last level one element title that we needed. Onward to all things level 2!

Mostly pairing food with hide. We will run odor hide only in about 1 out of 4 -5 runs per my instructor. We have taken off 7 weeks for the other people to catch up and will resume classes on vehicles and exteriors. In the meantime we are doing our homework on them ourselves. However Dax just went into her 2nd heat so for now nothing for awhile.

Looks like Newton will get to start Intro to Nose Work as soon as next weekend! It will be fun to see how differently him and Brandy go about "playing the game"! I'm excited, because he is very food motivated and can sniff out anything even when we put it up high.

The one thing that's really depressing about this sport is how hard it is to get in a trial because there are so few of them. People travel crazy distances which is not an option for me. Sadly, I just don't see that changing any time soon.

That is hard, and it's true that it can be hard to get into a trial. I think it's because the sport is so fun and is expanding so quickly. It takes a lot of work to put on a trial - lots of volunteers as well as the CO, judge, etc. You have to build a good nosework community and then, of course, you have a good nosework community that all want to trial

My limit for travel is about a 4.5 hour radius. I know quite a few people that have extended that even further, but I can't see making Brandy travel that much at her age. I don't really like even going that far, but MN puts on some good trials that I can't pass up.

Have you checked out other organizations? There are several organizations that offer nosework, including UKC, C-WAGS, Performance Scent Dogs, Dog Scouts of America, K9 ABC Games, K9 Scent Detection, and Wag-It Games.

Just got back after volunteering in Jacksonville Fl for a NW1 and L1 Element Specialty Trail. The weather was hot on Saturday for outside vehicles. We did that portion in the AM as it was on asphalt and worried about the dogs feet. We started at 9:15 and finished 36 dogs by 12:15. The rest of the day along with all day Sunday was inside. K9 Obedience and Training in Jacksonville put on the trail. Meet new people and reacquainted with old friends. Same judges at the last trail and ate lunch with them. Learn more from them which is always welcomed and a plus. The event was held at a great facility good not have asked for more. The food brought in for the volunteers was great. Great learning experience. Everyone had fun and lots of ribbons were given.

If anyone is at the trial in Green Bay, WI this weekend I will be volunteering! I'm there all day on Saturday and in the afternoon on Sunday. So far the weather is looking great, so I'm excited to see all the teams compete!

On another note, Brandy and I can't seem to catch a break for our NW2 run. We're 2 for 2 being wait-listed. We have another one to enter at the end of May, so hopefully our luck will change. I was really hoping to have a couple of tries, because I have a feeling this one won't be quite as easy as our NW1!

Had some interesting practice runs today....

Today's containers search was 6 boxes, one with birch and one with wintergreen. When the boxes were on the driveway, all three of them found both hides. When I moved the boxes to the grass, all three of them had trouble with the wintergreen one.

I set up an exterior hide with anise, and all three of them had trouble with it. Lily was the only one to even come close. Figuring I might have set up too hard a challenge, I moved the q-tips to a different location, where, despite the distractions of cats (and a kid during Ilka's run), they had an easier time.

So, the take away from today is a) don't use birch, because they know that one, and will destroy the box to alert on it; b) do more work on building value for clove, anise, myrrh, vetiver, wintergreen, and lemongrass; c) introduce red thyme and cypress; d)work on being less destructive when alerting (I have a FDSA class on alerts in my library); and e) practice more often than once a month or so.

Oh, and I'm sure that getting a break from all the freaking rain, and finally getting the grass cut to something shorter than knee-high will help with searches in the yard.

So proud of Indy, he earned his level 1 and level 2 C-WAGS scent titles today and one qualified level 3 run.
Here he is with his title ribbons

Just got word that my instructor earned his Elite 1 after 4 tries. His trail was in MO. He does travel quite the distance for trails as we are in Florida.
