I never thought we would be running two dogs at scent work, but here we are! Moby is totally enjoying class since it involves loads of food. He may be slow, but he’s pretty sure at what he wants. The above video was taken during one of the winter classes. At that time, I was running both in back to back classes. That’s proven to be a horrible idea since they feed off each others reactive dog responses. It also doesn’t work when I have to wrangle both dogs in and out of the building. Hazel now attends the advanced group, Moby the intermediates.
As of last week, he became an official member of the scent work world. His first odor trials are in mid May. We will be making a trip up to Washington, along the gorge, for the event. Once he passes, we will start thinking about entering his first NW1 trial. He actually stands a better chance, at this time, for successfully passing through all 4 courses. Hazel is having issues with locations and people. Much more exposure is needed for that girl!
