On The Nose

Huge congrats to Julie for passing her Target Odor Test at a Performance Scent Dogs trial! According to Joan Johnson, Julie, a “little clingy rescue dog with no attention span” can do “independent searching and maintain laser focus in Nose Work." Way to go!

Fastest Nose

Cooper shows off his Fastest Nose ribbons from the Performance Scent Dogs trial on March 11, 2017. According to Sue Lohrer, “The Fastest Nose is awarded to the dog with the fastest search times in each of the three levels: Novice, Advanced and Excellent. He won Fastest Advanced Nose for his Metallic Speed run (11.87 seconds) and Fastest Excellent Nose for his Distance run (17.39 seconds). Cooper is a very careful, methodical and thorough searcher so I wasn't expecting him to win one Fastest Nose award much less TWO!”

The Nose Knows

Jean Collins shared, “Danny and I have been competing in Performance Scent Dog nose work trials for about a year, but he really brought home the bacon at the High Fidelity Dog Training trial in Raynham, MA in October. Here's Danny with his ribbon take, including the Saturday High in Trial ribbon for his 5.38 second Novice Distance search! He also won an Iron Nose award for Q'ing in all classes we entered. Danny loves nose work!”
