There were all breeds and mixed breeds participating. The lure was just a couple plastic grocery bags tied to a rope an a pulley. ? Xena has such a high prey drive anything that moves would prob grab her attention. Lol.

Last week I stopped using 'leave it' if he fixated on another dog.
Instead, I rewarded heavily every time he...
Hey all! My little girl Katsu earned her L1V (Level 1 Vehicle Element Specialty Trial) title yesterday. It was our first Element trial so I wasn't sure what to expect. We had 4 searches, 1 hide, and 2.5-3 minutes to find the hide
1. 3 Tractors - 3 minutes, 1 hide
