Finally! Excellent Buried Hides Title!


An Excellent Buried Hides title (hides 6 inches down in ground)!  We sure tried enough times to get those 3 legs!  

That also got us our overall Excellent title because Jake already has the interior, containers and exterior master titles!  He also got the last of the Qs for the Master Interior Elite title!  Overall 8 placements (7-1st places and 1 3rd place)!  What a weekend!  

Thanks to the members of the Scent Work Club of Central WI for a great, fun trial! And thanks to awesome judges Christine Kozanda, Joanne Soyke and Renea L Dahms!!  You guys are the best!

Jake's Agility Adventures!

Two years ago I took Jake to agility lessons for fun and we participated in a few NADAC Video Runs at K9 Corps Agility and earned one leg.

We did very little last year but this year decided it would be good exercise for both of us so started with lessons from Jeff Reidl at Dogwood Acres (K9 Corp Agility) and Jake didn't miss a beat!  Me - not so much so he compensated for me saying the wrong thing and just followed my hand motions!  I am very careful to not let him jump much and the highest he will have to jump in 12 inches because of age and we also won't be doing the weave poles but we will be having fun!

Last week we did 2 Video Runs and, oh surprise, passed both!  Jake has matured nicely into a dog who now actually listens to me on the course!  I guess all that rally and obedience training we've done have made a difference!!  :)
