After twice with NAPWDA.

Wore out.....these tests always seem to be a humbling and learning experience.

Passed.

Congratulations Nancy. Your accomplishment kind of puts some of these silly sport arguments in perspective. Great job.

Re: Made it through the IPWDA basic and advanced cadaver test

The test is narrower in scope than NAPWDA - we will need to do a separate water cert, but are not as concerned about winding up in court on a water search...............and it does not cover vehicles and buildings (though I beileive they are changing the building thing and he did ADD a search area involving a building to the problems)---

The areas were tougher and larger than the NAPWDA areas. And he played with our heads on the negative area with some "are you sure?" and body language.

We had worked some time ago on the problem with him leaving source so I have him waiting until I get to him with the tug BUT he is breaking if I walk away from him - and as I look back - I did not do THAT. Fortunately when he broke he only went about a foot, went back to it and sat down again but it was a close call.

That and we are going to have to build some more committment to source (you go back and forth with differing opinions on the dog leaving source and going in and out of the pool to pin point so there is a fine line to walk) --- but that is a scenario I can work on at home then take to the woods to get him to generalize.

I also would like to congratulate Nancy.

But now David

U know those great Cadaver Dogs come from silly sport lines.

I have produced more Cadaver Dogs than most breeders combined and every last one comes from my silly sport dogs.

Again =D> Good Job Nancy
