On March 20th, I earned my NW3 Exterior Element Title! I’ve worked on it for a while and not only did I finally earn it, my search was spectacular. Mom and I had so much fun searching together at my trial that day! I did find nine of the ten hides, but I also got one “no”, so no overall title.
Our team has been in a free fall for several years and back in August when I scored just 12.5 out of a possible 100, Mom was going to retire me from nose work. Thankfully one of the judges we know said she could help us with my motivation. We started working with her in September, and I now take weekly classes from her. My AKC trial in October went much better than in the past, but this last trial was incredible. Mom and I had so much fun together! I wagged my tail, barked and howled with joy, all day long!
My last search of the day was my exterior search in an enclosed courtyard. There were a lot of things to search in the area and Mom was nervous, but she kept trusting me as she had all day. I did not disappoint finding all three hides lickity split! My search time was just a minute and ten seconds which was the seventh fastest. In the video, you can see how happy I am about working and finding the hides. I’m thrilled to also have my NW3 Exterior Element Title finally. Now I need to get the NW3 Title!
On the way home we stopped at the butcher shop and got fresh marrow bones for me and my sisters to celebrate. It was a wonderful day, and I can’t wait to go to another trial!
