AKC Scent Detection Trials

Our dogs are hunting dogs but we have also started them on scent work. We have been a part of AKC Scent Trials. There are 4 levels Novice, Advanced, Excellent and Masters. To earn each level the must pass 3 runs of elements buried, container, exterior and interior. They can also receive and Elite in each of the levels. Maverick has completed his Excellent title and is currently living with his new owners. Drake, Sunny have earned their Novice title and have started working on their Advanced. Star has one pass to do on her exterior novice and she will have completed her Novice title, she is currently working on her advanced title in the other elements. We have fun watching these dogs work in the field while flushing up birds but on the off season it is fun to watch them work as scent dogs.

At AKC Scent Trials there is a ribbon that dogs can earn. They must be entered in all four elements at the same level. They must qualify at all for elements for that trial day. Then the over all fastest time gets the the ribbon of "High In Trial". Both Maverick and Drake recieved this ribbon, it was fun to see both sire and son get this ribbon. Maverick got his at an trial in Omaha NE and Drake got his at a trial in Fargo ND.
