Local canine wins national awards
Josette Kimes and "Riley," an Entlebucher from Union City recently competed in nose work, a new scenting sport designed to utilize a dog's natural ability to detect odors. The Nation Association of Canine Scent Work held the trial in Arroyo Grande, CA which included a trail of four search elements: 1) container, 2) interior, 3) exterior, 4) vehicle.
Riley and Josette completed all elements receiving the NW1 title ribbon. They placed first in the vehicle search finding the odor in 17.96 seconds and were awarded 3rd place overall for completing all four searches in 1 minute and 34 seconds.
Riley will be demonstrating his prowess at the Union City Kennedy Community Center Monday, January 10, 2011 at 7 p.m. The public is welcome.
