Tracking Test November 2023

AKC Tracking Test

November 12, 2023
Chalco Hills Recreation Area
8901 S. 1554th Street, Omaha, NE 68138

The Nebraska Kennel Club held their 3TD 4TDX Trial November 12, 2023 at Chalco Hills Recreation Area in Omaha, NE.

The test did not fill and we ended up with 1 TD and 2 TDX entries. Oddly enough, all exhibitors were club members.

Our judges this year was Carla Ogert and Jane Jonas. These judges did a fine job of laying tracks!

The temperature was in the 50’s with a calm wind and sunny.

Our first track of the day was the TD. This was run by a 13.5 month old Labrador Retriever. His track was a zig zag 450 yards with 4 turns and 5 legs. Just prior to them running the track a deer jumped the fence from the TD field into the park. Luckily the dog was looking the other way at the time and didn’t see the deer. This boy started really strong. The team got hung up on the third corner but managed to work back and find the track and made it to the glove! Congratulations to Bluff View’s High Voltage From Laughter SWN SEA SBA (Sulley) and Shelly Rehmeier on their new TD title!

The second track was a TDX run by a Golden Retriever. This team struggled on the first leg with distractions. Unfortunately, they could not move on and was whistled. When talking afterwards with the handler, he said they finished the track nicely.

The third track was a TDX run by a Border Terrier. This handler had to work thru his dog finding deer bones early on in his track. After that they had a beautiful road crossing but then took the cross tracks and was whistled. This handler said he felt good with how his dog worked on the rest of the track.

I would like to thank Sue Volkmer for taking on the Chair position.

I would like to thank Jan Hague for taking such good care of our judge.

I would like to thank all of our volunteers which included some new people interested in tracking: Dawn Thrapp, Sharon Brewer, Annie Kelley, Ellen Plouzek, Jan Hague, Lori Tranmer, Adria Bhatnagar, Karen Rueschoff, Alicia Robinson, Barbara Hill, Medora Harper, Irena Harrington, Sheryl Bradbury, Norine Nieman, Mary Ruhe and Ron Weaks.

Banner Park is a lovely flat park on mowed grass with abundant paved parking.

The weather for this weekend was much better than our last 2 Fast CATs not nearly as windy and we had only 1 hour rain delay.  It took longer on Saturday to get ribbons and times out as we worked with a new secretary.  This improved much for Sunday.  The numbers and new titles are as follows:

35 dogs participated in Fun Runs.

We had 289 runs with 260 qualifiers

Thank you to the participants and volunteers that made this a successful event.
