Fred works with Slate

About 2 dozen people and dogs gathered for the NLDA’s first tracking challenge and field day event of 2012.

The weather was nearly perfect for the weekend’s events. After the trials, participants were able to enjoy a delicious lunch and share stories.

Other events included snake avoidance training, trapping, and hog baying.

As always, new friends were made and the bar was set for future NLDA tracking events. We are grateful to everyone who joined us. The success of the NLDA depends upon the gracious support of the working dog community. We strive to provide activities for skilled dogs and their owners to partake in and be recognized for exceptional performance.
