"Isla," Lamarde Perro Dark N Stormy at Classique, wins Best Puppy in Sweepstakes at the Inland Empire Hound Club Show on January 6th! A big Thank You to Judge Casie Smith for recognizing Isla!
This week, Viva earned her Nosework 1 (NW1) title at the NACSW Trial in Newhall! We've been training for this for over a year now, and it was so exciting to see all of our preparation come together at yesterday's trial. The trial location was hot, dusty, gravely, occasionally windy, with trains going by...and she still pulled through!
For those that aren't familiar with Nosework...At this level, dogs are asked to find a "hide" (in this case, a single q-tip scented with birch oil) in an unknown location in 4 different search types: vehicles, containers, interiors, and exteriors. You have to pass each search type in order to earn the title. I can't recommend it enough...You'll really challenge your dogs in a new, fun way!
A big thank you to our trainer Steve DeTata at Wags and Wiggles for making sure Viva was super prepared for the trial! Now, on to the NW2!
Isla won Best in Match from the 4-6 month puppy class at the SDRRC Match! What a fun start to her show career!
We are excited to share that Viva got to be a part of Purina One's latest commercial!! She's the one trotting towards and eating out of the bowl!
