I am so glad someone finally started a Nosework thread!!! My 10-year-old Daisy girl and I have been taking NW classes here in MA for about 2 1/2 years. We love it! However, we can't seem to earn a NW1 title yet- we have competed in 4 trials so far, LOL!
Daisy is an extremely reactive dog, so the whole process has been quite a challenge. In addition, she seems to have a tough time sticking to source, and her alert is EXTREMELY subtle (touches nose, then looks back at me). Every so often, when Daisy's feeling bold, she will attempt to dig or paw at source. I am so worried that she might scratch one of the vehicles! I really need to work on reading her body language better, especially when she is in new environments.
I love the sport and all the people involved!!! I look forward to hearing about everyone's training experiences!
