So proud of our boy Hudson! He earned his NW1 Nose Work title yesterday at the NACSW trial in Sierra Madre, CA. Hudson is the first west coast Old English Sheepdog to earn this title and the third OES in the USA. He had the fifth fastest time out of 48 competitors for all 4 combined searches. Dogs have to pass 4 tests - find the hidden scent in four settings - Interior, Exterior, Vehicle and Container (closed boxes). Tests are timed and max limit is usually 3 minutes per search. Hudson's respective times were 15.49 seconds Interior; 1 min. 16 sec. Exterior; 26.23 seconds Vehicle and 43.79 container. Hudson LOVES THIS GAME. In fact, I have never seen a dog who did not love this game. If you are interested in more info, check out the website at http://www.nacsw.net or email me.
This new dog sport is growing by leaps and bounds and there is a reason. Dogs get to be DOGS and while we work as a team, they are the ones with the nose and we have to learn to respect their abilities. It is a huge confidence builder for many dogs, and is proving to be a boon for many rescue dogs who are unsure of the world around them at first. Can you tell I am a FAN of NOSE WORK training??!!! I have found everyone involved in the new sport of Nose Work to be incredibly supportive and the camaraderie at the trial yesterday was very impressive.
