Storm was the mischief-maker at this past weekend’s hunt test. She went to the line for the first series which was a triple with a shot flyer, a land blind and an honor. She sat next to her handler waiting for the birds. The first mark went off (the flyer), she crept two feet in front of her handler. The second mark went off and she was three feet in front of her handler. The third mark went off and she took off to fetch the duck. A break and she was out of the test. I don’t have any pictures from this past weekend, but here is one of the excited girl from April.
We will be working on Storm’s steadiness because in Master’s when the dog breaks it doesn’t get to run the rest of the test and misses the thing it really wants to do, which is retrieve the ducks. We hope Storm will eventually understand this.
Those of you following this blog’s Facebook page already know the big news from the weekend. Thunder earned his first Master pass! No mischief from him. He did a really good job. Congrats to Thunder, his handler, and a big thank you to Darrin for all of his help with Thunder’s training.
Thunder had a bit of mischief played on him during the test, but that will have to wait until tomorrow’s post. For now here is his ribbon picture.
