Darwin

 

Darwin at 10 months. Started Scent detection type training at 4 months.

 

On 2/17 and 2/18/2018 He was entered in a UKC Nosework Trial. (Target scent detection). The trial was held in Council Bluffs, IA on Sunshine Obedience School's grounds and it was full. It was a two day, 4 trial show, however, I entered him only in trial 1 so he could do 4 searches, then get out and home to play and recover. It was Darwin's first official show in anything. Placements were separated by hundredths of a second on time.

 

Over the weekend he ended up passing four Pre-trials - Novice, Advanced, Superior and Masters (these are considered a title by UKC and go in front of the dog's name. ) PTN, PTA, PTS, PTM. For non-Nosework people, these are container search tests with no distractions used to see if the dog recognizes and will indicate the odor tested. Each level has a required target odor - Novice is birch. Advanced is Anise. Superior is Clove and Master is Myrrh. They must be passed before the team can go into individual element searches.

 

He also passed all of his Novice Interior searches and Novice container searches and has titles in both (NC and NI)

 

Total: 2 Individual Element search titles (containers and Interior) and 4 PT titles - 6 passes - all searches with placements.

 

He is now PTM NI NC Sandy Creek Ripple Effect, S.T.A.R. Puppy.
