Welcome to NW-Practice at home Post #1

Welcome! This group was created to give our local Valley Nose Work/Scent Work group a safe place to PLAY until we can get back together in person to practice with our dogs. We will post a weekly (maybe more often) Practice Exercise to work on at home – feel free to post videos of your dogs and ask/answer any questions.

Iโ€™m posting a brief nose work video just to test the new group settings. This should be a PSD Speed Search (Baxter) from last year or the year before. Fingers crossed. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Baxter is giving us a demo of HIS final-response behavior (what he does to communicate to me that he is at source). In this case, it was a timed search … we only had 45 seconds to find TWO hides. Can you tell (before I call alert) when Baxter says “It’s right here!”?

Iโ€™m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isnโ€™t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. Iโ€™m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
