Thanks everyone. I'm so proud of him and how well he's doing. He tries so hard for me and it's lovely that all our hard work is bearing fruit.

Today we went on our Scent 6 workshop. It's the test day after doing the Scent 1-5 workshops and is assessed by the lady who set up our scentwork organisation. Through the rally I've learned to just go with the flow, make sure that Rogue's having a good positive experience and work on maintaining what we've worked together on rather than aiming to 'be the best' (it all goes horribly wrong when I start getting competitive - Rogue's taught me what others didn't manage LOL). I'm not allowed to say much about the Scent 6 process, but he searched with confidence and with his tail up. He settled well outside the hall between searches.

We passed!

I'm now a TDS Accredited Handler - and Rogue's a tired woof

(p.s. he put that megazorb on the mat himself and it's resisted washing and shaking to get it out!)

Wow, well done Vectis and Rogue! He looks so deservedly proud posing on his certificate. He even has the cutest, lopsided smirky grin on his face; I just love it!!! Lol, at the tired woof. He sure needs a good snooze after all of that adventure and hard work. Congrats to the both of you for passing the Scent 6 workshop. I know that you must be so proud to now be a TDS Accredited Handler, Vectis! What a wonderful achievement!

Rogue's been a busy boy recently. We went to a 2 day rally obedience trial and got another score towards his Level 1 Championship as well as him working happily with much better attention and focus.

We started two online classes this month. One is at gold level where I post videos of the homework and get feedback from a qualified rehab specialist on Rogue's knees and physio exercises. The other is working on heel/side/front position, backing up and lateral movement by a Freestyle instructor. Getting our positions more solid is my focus for this winter so I got the bronze level of the class (where I can't post homework) so I can work on it at our own pace. Rogue's new rehab kit arrived today and it's very smart!

We're also working towards the next trick dog title and have filmed our first video with 7 of the 12 points needed:

Aww, Rogue looks so proud posing on his rehab equipment. He is such a cutie, and I just love all of his wonderful expressions. Congrats to you both that Rogue got another score towards his Level 1 Championship. Good luck with the two online classes; I'm sure that he will ace them as he is a very talented dog and you are an amazing mum. Two thumbs up and bravo for Rogue in the 7 of the 12 new tricks shown on your video. He is doing marvelously and the two of you look like you are having the time of your lives. I'm so happy for the both of you. Have fun and good luck with all that you are working on accomplishing.
