Dasko earned his FH title yesterday at the Alpha K9 trial in New Jersey, under USCA Judge Al Govednik. The start was a little shaky. The track had been laid earlier in the morning and by the time we went to track it the farmer had driven the tractor right in front of my flag so there were 2 large ruts and cut grass right in front of the scent pad!! Dasko naturally wanted to check the ruts with the fresh scent and spent a bit of time doing so which prompty game me heart failure!! After what seemed like minutes but was only a few seconds on the video he decided (correctly) that the track went straight ahead! He had a couple of head checks on that long first leg. I think he was HOPING for a corner! LOL It was for sure the longest first leg I have ever seen! It went for what seemed like MILES! LOL he track with a deep nose, penciled all of his corners and handled the road crossing like a champ... tracked it foot step to foot step, Out biggest point loss came when he missed the 3rd article and we lost 5 points right there!! He ended up with 92 points in the extremely HOT/HUMID weather :) LOVE him to pieces!!!
I hope you come back here often to read more about what's happening at Rennbahn K9!
