PhD - Puppy Has Dedication - degree (handler does too, lol)..

Master's - certification in more than one organization for same discipline..

Areli my 2yr4mos old got her 'Master's' this weekend certifying through IPWDA in trailing (SAR)... . It was supposed to be a wilderness trail, but ended up being more urban.. She is also certified through ASCT.

Akivah (gsd/malamute) my 2.5yr old got his PhD through IPWDA in trailing (SAR) and it also was urban/suburban...

Super proud of babies they worked their tails off and it was a fun 3 day weekend workshop...

Thank you :) I'm proud of them too.. Ironically, now we train harder, lol... Both dogs have deployed (Akivah just for confirmation of an aged urban trsil) and thankfully, they were good turnouts for the missing /lost, but knowing that lived depend upon their training makes me(them) work that much harder...
