all the time -- put in a lot of dogs for RCMP - doing 2 and 3 mile tracks at 6 - 7 months
the same fire in the belly to hunt out is necessary for any of the detection dogs
Carmspack Blast - new title
Carmspack Blast trained and handled by Sue Coutts , also owner of Carmspack Trust UDTX (urban track excellent) , has earned a new title.
He is now Blast who has his Urban Track title now also has added the TDX title to his achievements.
the conditions could not have been worse ---- here is Sue's account of things .
We had some record rainfall yesterday and overnight, with our roads covered in water across them, and raining this morning still.
Winds were supposed to be bad again today, but never got too much before our tracks were over, luckily.
Blast was no. 2 and that field meant the very long walk out to start, which is an issue for us as he’s straining to get there and choking, and my arm’s almost out of its socket!
We had two ditches, a dirt/gravel road crossing, some ruts where I almost fell
There were 8 legs, seemed really, really long, but showed as only 905m.
he did it very quickly, I had to run a few times.-
-- areas with standing water
here is what a TDX track might look like Birch-Bark Hill: TDX "Test" Training Track for Blast
