D’Saju (DD litter) earned his NW1 title in April 2015, doing a beautiful job on all 4 searches. One of the judges was an Iraq dog-handler veteran who just *had* to say hello to Saju once we finished our last search for the day. The judge was quite taken with his classic LDS good looks and great work ethic.
We are now training for the NW2!
“Soleil” is now UN2, MNC, PT5, URO1 StoneFox Loup Du Soleil!!! She is the first dog to have any Master level title in the United Nosework program. She earned her Superior Nosework Container and her Master Nosework Container titles this last weekend.
Saju passed all 3 of his Odor Recognition Tests (birch, anise, and clove) early this year. His birch test was the 2nd fastest of the day of 80 dogs, and his other two tests were also very quick and sure.
We couldn’t attend classes last year, we just worked on our own, so I was extra happy with his first dog-sport achievement.
