Tracking Seminar

Back at the beginning of April, we took part in a tracking seminar. Here are some of the pictures taken by Kristi Whitworth who was also participating in the seminar with her male weim, Remi.

Debbie and Sky's Trip East - Part 2 - Downtown and The Beach

Of course, Debbie and Sky's visit included a trip (or 2) to the beach.  The girls had a blast running around.

Debbie and Sky's Trip East - Part 1 - Tracking

We were thrilled to have Debbie and Sky (Grayhart Lightfoot Early Morning Rain RN, TD, JH, NSD, V) come to Wilmington to visit for a few days.  Of course, the majority of our time was spent doing all kinds of fun dog stuff including....tracking.

Article indication - Mia has been taught to lay down when she finds articles.  She then gets rewarded from me.

On the scent

Debbie and Sky are working on TDX so Sky's tracks were aged 2 hours.

After the girls tracked, we let them romp around in the field.  Mia especially enjoyed playing with the soccer ball she found.

Our second day tracking

Good girl Mia

Debbie laid a track for Sky that went into some woods making it a little more complex.  Sky did great!
We also got to spend some time in historic downtown Wilmington and the beach, of course.  Pictures from those adventures will be posted later.
