Working Class Hero


Recommended Posts

Mooney and I attended a seminar on mantrailing. He learns to track a specific person by his or her scent. I learn to trust him and his decisions. Here we are showing off our training efforts. Clever boy, Mooney :wub:

Mooney is so good at his new activity and he clearly loves it! He’s so intent and he doesn’t even leave any of his own messages along the way :lol:

Well done both of you!

It's a sighthou-- no, it's a scenthound!

It was great to see when he came to the choice of going right or left, and he lifted his nose and took in the scent.

Absolutely incredible!  Well done!  In order for my two to find anyone, the person would have to be holding a live rabbit and sitting on a roast beef.

You would be surprised. I would have never thought that Mooney would learn to use his nose that fast.

I was so intrigued to watch Mooney working that I'm exploring scent work training for Nate.  Thank you!

Mooney is soo enjoying this. Noseworks was a godsend for Paddy Mayhem. I’m excited for you and Nate to explore it!

You don't know how HAPPY it makes me to see you and Mooney doing that!!! Greyhounds might be sighthounds but hey! they can be GREYT at scent work to! People don't usually appreciate just how talented our hounds are.  My Octane LOVES scent detection and titled in the first two trials he ran! You and Mooney just keep training and rising up and gaining experience and who knows where you could wind up. You could title him or certify and do search and rescue maybe or just have fun. He is truly a gifted hound and a greyt ambassador for just how talented our houndies truly are.  Thank you very much for posting the videos. They were greyt! And kudos to Team Mooney!:beatheart
