Burkhardt and Marek competed in a dock diving trial over the weekend!
This was Burkhardt's second Air Retrieve trial and he got a personal best of 16 feet! He just needs two more jumps to get his first AR title. He also got some successful distance jumps and is currently the #4 Rottweiler in NADD.
Marek got some successful distance jumps and is so close to his Dock Master Advanced title. He got a personal best of 22 feet 6 inches! He is currently the #1 Beauceron in NADD.

The Norwegian elkhound club held a herding workshop this morning and Burkhardt got to attend as well!
Rottweilers were originally bred as an all purpose farm dog specifically for carting and herding so I love to get Burkhardt out on sheep whenever I can to retain that herding instinct. Plus he loves to herd!
