Terri (Peaches' mom, not Zed's mom -- confusing, I know :) has previously shared about the new dog sport called Nosework -- well, she and Peaches (F Litter) were in their first official trial on Sunday and here is a summary from Terri:
"Yea! Peaches got her NW1 Title! (She was one of 23 out of 39 competitors to get their titles.)
She got a perfect score of 25 in all four events, Vehicle, Interior, Container and Exterior
In three of those events she also got a "Pronounced" recognition which is at the judges discretion and reflects the teamwork exhibited between dog and
handler. She also got some great comments from the judges on her score sheets, my favorite being "Awesome to watch!".
Her highest placement was 2nd in the Interior Search, she was in the middle of the group for the other three. There was some really tough competition!"
Here is a picture from the inside part of the testing/trial:
In these outdoor shots, Peaches is finding what Terri describes this way: "It's a little 1" round metal container with 1 q-tip cut in half that has the scent of birch oil on it, and is hidden up and under the running board invisible to both of us visually."
Yea for Terri and Peaches!!!! Congratulations :)
