The Dogs are Tricksters Now!

Busy Dog House Weekend

We spent the last 3 days attending Barn Hunt and C-WAGS trials. So proud of both my kids. Between the two of them they earned 3 new titles and 10 Q’s

Brodie got his Barn Hunt Instinct and Novice titles as well as his C-WAGS Level 2 Scent Detective Ace title (RATI RATN CW-SDA). He also got his first Q in Barn Hunt Open and 40 points towards his Barn Hunt Crazy 8’s title. He earned a Q in C-WAGS Scent Ranger Level 1, Scent Detective and Scent Investigator

Spirit is too big for the Barn Hunt tunnels but she Q’d in all 3 of her C-WAGS runs today

Boxing Day Doggy Style

Boxing Day started with giving the dogs a full turkey breakfast with all of the trimmings. Thanks to Auntie Dawn for sending us home with doggy bags.

Instead of going to a mall and fighting with hundreds of stressed out shoppers looking for “the” Boxing Day deal, we went out and played in the snow. I think the dogs were very happy with our decision.

C-WAGS Christmas

We spent today at See Spot Run participating in our last C-WAGS trial for 2019. Brodie earned two Level 2 Q’s. Spirit whipped his butt by not only earning two Level 2’s but also her first Level 4 Q. Thanks to Judges Deb, Christina and Robbi.

More Elite Titles

BrodieElite2-3Ribbons

Brodie and I had an incredible weekend at the Canine Coaching SDDA trial held at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame. Big thanks to Samantha Freschette and all her wonderful volunteers for putting on another amazing trial and to Judge Richard Hatchman.

On Saturday there were 9 or 10 teams doing elite searches.  That is the biggest Elite group we have ever trialed with (normally it is 5 or 6 teams maximum).  We ran last so we had lots of time to wait and worry….ok I worried and stressed, Brodie didn’t care. It was so exciting to see each team come out from their searches all excited because they had passed.  An incredible 6 teams passed all 3 components to earn an Elite title.  For two teams it was their elusive first title.  One amazing team (Al and Kerri) reached the ultimate pinnacle in SDDA and earned both their Sporting Detection Elite Champion and Sporting Detection Grand Master Champion.  We earned our 2nd elite title, but more importantly we got our first gold score.  We also got a first place in containers, 3rd place in interiors and a 3rd place overall.

On Sunday there were 6 elite teams competing and this time we searched first. Only one team titled on Sunday…..and it was us and it was another gold!  Since we were the only team to title, we got first place overall and we were the only team to pass the exterior search so we got first in exteriors.  I am still in shock.  We now have 3 elites, under 2 different judges and the elusive 2 gold scores.  We need two more elite titles to earn our Sporting Detection Elite Champion and Sporting Detection Grand Master Champion.
