Whiskey Creek Precious Mettle WC, JH

At the Regina Retriever Club Hunt test on July 6, 2014 Nugget qualified for the 3rd leg and final leg of her Junior Hunt title.  Judges were Danielle G and Grant Wasniuk.
Nugget got her mojo back after having difficulty with shore running in Brandon she came to the water marks confidently and left from a slippery mound.  Both back to back singles were executed in fine form with Nugget going straight as an arrow and returning the same from the marks.

Nuggs new cart

Yesterday Nugget got to take her freshly painted cart for a spin at the Draft Workshop hosted by Wascana Dog Obedience Club.  We started with a short spin around the trails with no weight, by the end of the session Nugg hauled 30lbs along the trails with ease.  She is a lot more relaxed pulling now.  I don't think 40lbs will be to tough to work up to for her, she can use some work on her turns and backing up.  She understands hike and does pretty well with easy and whoa.  She does pretty good going up hills, but could use more control on coming down.  Now to work on the obedience parts in preparation for the test in September.
