Our little brother earned his third title Sunday. Nelson earned two Scent Work Titles two weeks ago and yesterday he earned his Novice Barn Hunt Title. He had four runs and qualified in three of them. In Novice, there is one rat tube, one litter tube, and one empty tube. The guy seems to know the difference without any problem. The round he didn’t qualify in, he simply ran out of time.
A Q in Novice consists of finding the rat correctly, going through the tunnel, and climbing with all four paws on a bale of straw. The ring Novice was in had the extra challenge of the great outdoors on the back side. Nelson did check it out both days but thankfully didn’t get hung up there and kept on searching.
Waiting is hard for all of us but for a six month old puppy, it seems like years. Mom snapped this shot of him in the blind waiting for his turn. Behind him is the dock diving pool which he was curious about.
Nelson qualified in his very first run which is awesome! It took him a long time to find the rat but he did it. Mom said that on the second day, he seemed to know what was going on and had a much easier time completing all his tasks quickly. He did earn second place in all three of his qualifying runs which is also pretty nice.
Finally we present to you our little brother Ethos Let’s Go Crazy SIN SEN RATN. We are super proud of him! Mom had a great time learning to work with him and she is looking forward to a fun and long sports career with the little fellow.
