Pleased to say, Snap (Xcessive Force Du Loups Du Soleil) earned his FR Brevet Sunday with a nice score of 95.6. The video is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeuKnt0m_KQ
We are preparing as well for an attempt at IPO 2 in 2 weeks. Right before the Brevet we had tracked, and after went back to the IPO field for blinds and rear transports. I’m sure Snap thought he had won the lottery!
New Loups du Soleil titles to report from our trial held Sept. 15 and 16 in Bozeman, Montana. Judge was Andrea Duggan, trial helper was Craig Lewis.
Lexi – (Olexa du Loups du Soleil), handled by Warren Jones – IPO 3
Zappa – handled by Samie Jones, BH and IPO 1
Aahzi – handled by Anne Camper, IPO 1, HIT with high obedience, tracking and protection
And non-LDS brags – Samie and Dax (GSD) also got their IPO 1 and Anne and Bekqa got their FH 2.
It was a good weekend!
Whoo-hoo! L’Jersey du Loups du Soleil and handler John Allen just earned their Mondioring 3 making them the second LdS dog to Triple Title! Which of you is next?
