May 5 Shetland Sheepdog Club CKC Sent trial, Chilliwack. At the first CKC scent work trial in BC (second one in Canada), it was fun to run Tristan as a Novice dog again, and he gained his SDN by Qing all 3 of his runs, making him the second so titled whippet in Canada, a day after daughter Aurora. I also ran Dustyn, barely 6 months, and wasn’t feeling so great as the day went on, so made some handler errors that didn’t do him any favours. Sorry, little man. We did pass the Interior search for his first Q. But, he did a fantastic job for barely over 6 months, and found all the hides, and would have qualified in them all if it weren’t for his handler.
