Bailie and I have our first ORT tests in just three weeks, so we are studying hard! ORT is for odor recognition test and this test will be a test for birch odor for both of us. Mom has never been to one of these test either so it is all new for us. Luckily, our teacher, Sharon, at Active Dog Sports Training is trying real hard to help us prepare. We completed Nose Work level 2 and start level 3 this week. We are excited as it will be outdoor and vehicle searches. At our last class, we were told how the ORT test works, how to prepare and did a couple test runs in class. [Read more…]
We are in a serious school mode at our house the past few months! As you know Bailie is in Obedience School. She finished level one and is now in level two. Hopefully she will pass that and move on to get her CGC. Bailie and I are in Nose Work 2, and last weekend Bailie took an intro to tracking class. Mom is really busy driving us around and helping us with all our homework! Today I wanted to tell you about what we are doing in Nose Work and then about Bailie and tracking. One other note…I keep forgetting to say a special thank you to Jodi at Heart Like A Dog. It was because of her posts about Nose Work quite a while ago that Mom started looking into the sport for us. We learn so much from our friends in Blogville, it is a wonderful community!
