In October Elly earned her NW2 Title.  She also received a special designation… well it was for both of us actually. We were recognized for ‘exceptional teamwork’!

I can’t say enough about the sport of Nose Work and what it has done for her confidence.  Less than two years ago she was afraid of boxes (pretty much anything really) and was hesitant to enter a room with strangers.  In our last trial she actually approached the judge and steward in the interior search areas!  Not what she is supposed to do for NW, but I will take the confidence she displayed to check them out.  In addition it is a great sport for Tripawds as it challenges their minds and tires them out without undue strain on the body.  Even if you don’t compete it is a great game to play at home.

I love her approaching the start line in the photo below:

And here is one of the videos from our Trial:

There is a new blog post in Elly’s blog with more pictures and all the videos.

Way to go Elly & Karen.  You both have come so far.  I see a huge difference in her confidence.  I am glad you found a job for her to do that made her feel comfortable in her skin

Team Elly ROCKS! I love that you’ve both taken this activity and ran with it to achieve soooo much. Not just titles and applawse, but confidence and a stronger bond. BONUS!

It was fun watching her go round looking in the room and spot the odor so quickly. What was the scent she detected? And why the super long leash?

Thanks everyone!

Rene- the odor was either birch or anise, both are used at level 2.  They don’t tell us which it was and I don’t really care- we train on all three odors so they all should be equally important to Elly.  Should be…. when we are training if she has trouble with one odor over the others I will sometimes spend more time on that odor to reinforce it.

And the leash- it’s 11.5 feet long.  I don’t want to be right up on her while she is searching, the length allows me some distance from her.  The interiors were the only element that had an on/off leash option, the majority of the searches are on leash.  If you look at the other three videos in her blog you will see why I need the length.  Also… I have trouble keeping up with her!
