She did it!! Rogue passed her tracking test!!
She is now RLR Babe In Total Control TD CGN.
The test went REALLY well. Rogue was extremely revved before and during the test.
A gentleman asked me if my dog was ready for the test and I told him “I don’t know.”
It’s true, I didn’t know. Just like humans, dogs have their good days and their bad. I didn’t know what sort of day this was going to be for Rogue.
Well, it was a good day. Together, we made history. As far as I understand, I am the first blind person to track at a Canadian Kennel Club event.
Our track was 410 metres long and we finished it in just over 6 minutes. Huib and I were dying by the end, Rogue was freaking flying!!
I am SO proud of my little red girl! She has been a great friend and training buddy. Not only does she work well to keep me safe each day, she also works hard to impress me with her intelligence and willingness to try anything.
On Friday morning we are going to start training for the next level, TDX. If it is not too snowy or cold this winter we may also start training for our first urban tracking title.
**There are pictures from our tracking adventure, so I will see if Huib can help me post them in the next week or so**
