We had our first NW trial today, and DH and Roscoe rocked!! They finished all four elements in 2:39 and DH earned "pronounced" rankings on all four searches. That means you impressed the judges with your handling & teamwork with your dog. Bella and I did okay on the first three searches, but I false alerted on the last one.
Despite the massive blow to my ego, I'm quite proud of my boys! He says it helped that he had no idea what he was doing as far as strategies and didn't really care about rankings.
So he didn't overthink things and didn't get caught up with trying to be fast.
He had to stand up and get a ribbon and there was an eruption of cheers. Roscoe has groupies.
