Copper gets Tr1 and high tracking

So proud to say that Copper got her TR1 at our club's trial yesterday. She also got the highest tracking score so earned herself a nice high tracking trophy. We scored 90 because she missed the first article, which was pretty much my fault but considering the difficult tracking conditions it was a very nice track. Tracks were on hills in dry conditions with constant wind. She worked the track a little too fast for my liking but hit the corners perfect and never lifted her head up or changed pace, had great intensity for the track.

This dog has been so much fun to learn with and live with. I'm sure there will be a lot more tracking and trialing in our future. Aiming for a perfect tracking score this spring when we go for IPO1. Thanks to everyone who helped us!

Congrats. When I competed tracking was my favorite part. All my dogs have done tracking since. And may compete with my new puppy. Tracking is magical to me

Congratulations!!!!! So very very very happy for you and proud of you both!!! You have done a fantastic job with Copper (Naughty!!!) and I hope all my pups end up in homes so great!

I only wish I had been able to come out and cheer you and Tiffany (November ~ who got a BH at the same trial!) on yesterday! Hopefully I will get there for the IPO1 for you and her next title with Ember or even Pfalcon!

Big HUGS to all of you!!!!
