~In a Good Way
I didn’ t realize that Henry has only been learning scent-work since March. We got involved because being an energetic, 3-year-old Weim, with a flair for being extreme nosey, it seemed to be fit. Also, I found the science behind a dogs nose fascinating.
What We Accomplished
Henry has completed Level 1, 2, 3 and working in level 4. More than anything though, it has been an experience for me! I have learned more about myself in the last few months and for that, I am most grateful to my handsome Blue boy. Scentwork is a team trust sport.
Your dog knows what to do, however until dogs and humans can speak the same language, the sport is much more about learning patience, watching your dogs every move, and even more important, trust. We have had good trials and not so good, one thing is certain Henry loves this sport and so do I. We take away something new from each practice or trial. We figure a way through false alerts and keep rewarding the sourced odor.
Henry’s hard work has left us with 3 titles, Level 1 and 2 C-WAGS, Level 1 ABC games, Noteworthy, in our seemingly short period of time. I am very lucky to have Henry enjoy this sport as much as I do. It’s a special bond with a Weimaraner, I’m finding out truly how extraordinary Henry is. Thank-you Cliff and Shela!!
We are happy to hear about your continued success. Congratulations to you Patti–what a great team the two of you make. Fun–that is something that is so important. If you are having a good time more than likely, the Weimaraner is as well. At least in Henry’s case, this seems to be his element. Keep up the good work!
