Photos From Our First Nose Work Trial

I finally got the professional photos from our first Nose Work Trial back in May.  This was the one down in Rancho Cucamonga where Elly earned her Level 1 Containers Title.

When we practice NW or go to Trials we have a routine. When we get to the start line I ask Elly ‘ready to play the game?’.  Most of the time we make eye contact, sometimes she surveys the search area, the I say ‘FIND IT’ and off she goes!

 

Ready to Play the Game?

 

We have pictures from 3 of the 4 searches, the fourth search was actually in a bathroom which was too small a space for a photographer.

Our first two searches were in hallways, in one the ‘hide’ was on a kids shopping cart, and the other was on a small easel.  Most of the pictures I kept were Elly with her nose on or near the hide and then her telling me she found the odor by standing still and looking at me.

On the ‘hide’
It’s here!

 

 

What’s this?

 

I found it!

 

Our third search was in a lobby area.  There really wasn’t much in the search area so it was pretty easy for her to locate.

Snack time!

 

Can’t wait for our next Trial!

Maggie was a little black pug born in 1999. On September 7, 2006 she lost her left rear leg to a mast cell tumor. Because of lymph node involvement Maggie went through a 6 month chemo regimen. She was given 6 to 9 months after her amp, but she beat mast cell cancer! In the winter of 2010 things started to slide; in the course of about 2 months she had 2 MCTs removed, was diagnosed with incontinence and kidney failure, and then the big blow- oral melanoma. She lived her carefree tri-pug life until she crossed over on June 2, 2010.
