AKC scentwork

This weekend Legend made her debut in AKC scentwork. It’s kind of similar to UKC in the titling structure except you need three legs in an element instead of two. The other big difference between this and UKC or NACSW is the use of buried hides instead of vehicles. For the lower levels they are buried in containers of sand or something similar. We have practiced a little at home and Legend has been getting used to it. 

Overall she had a great weeeknd. She passed all 8 searches and places 1st and 3rd in containers, and 3rd in buried. There were some hide placements that were atypical for what we usually see in UKC and NACSW so that was really good for us. We had fun, enjoyed the chance to spectate and look forward to next time!

In other news, Penny got adopted. This was one of the few times we’ve had a family with kids (age 8 and 11) adopt and it was so much fun to see their excitement and reactions. She’s going to be a very lucky girl!
