14.9.2008 Muzzy and I took part in a blood tracking trial at Hangasjärvi for the very first time. Our judge was Ms. Kati Huovila.

As whole and considering the circumstances I am very pleased with Muzzy's tracking! Muzzy's result was 3rd prize in the open class with 24 points.

Enjoying the wild
6.7.2008 Muzzy, Jenny and I trained blood tracking in the Central Finland. I also made Jenny's first rabbit track in the woods. Both father and daughter tracked the corners beautifully and carefully and made a turn of 90 degrees like there was a straight visible line for them to see and follow on the ground! The game at the end of the track was extremely interesting for both of them but unfortunately too frozen to grab. Jenny merrily tracked down the rabbit as well and did a focused but quick paced work. Now, just towards the tracking competitions! :)
