Brew & Bob at the Renton Fun Match!

Today, Jo and I got up early for the Renton Fun Match. Below are videos of their Rally runs. I learned outdoor rings are a huge distraction for the beagles. Brew held it together until the 8th sign and then he was all beagle - smelling and sniffing the ground. Bob also smelled everything as well as jumping all over the place. Overall, they both did pretty well after all they are beagles and so they should get extra credit. I've entered Brew in Rally at the June Puyallup show so I can see we need to do some extensive training in the next two weeks without treats.

Team Beagle in Training

Brew and Bob in the Riverdog Outdoor Excursion class. Here we are at Tiger Mountain a few weeks ago, lots of off leash dogs and smells in abundance which meant BIG challenges for beagles to remain calm. And yes, that is Brew in the background barking.
