Fly is proving that you can not only teach a good old Beezer new tricks, but they can excel at them. Today in GA, Fly got 6 Qs and finished his Advanced Container, Advanced Interior and Advanced Buried titles. He got 4 placements as well- a 1st in Interior, a 1st and 2nd in buried and a 4th in containers. The icing on the cake was Fly being the only one of 15 dogs to qualify in a buried run. Buried was particularly challenging this trial as it was not only outside, but was in a field and windy. Super proud of this boy!
Congrats to Kara and Cora! Cora got her first Handler Discrimination Q, as well as her first Advanced Q in Buried, and five placements in Novice.
Cora is from the 2020 Mind Litter.
It was a successful weekend all around for multiple litters. On the east coast, LGRA & NOTRA Nationals was in Camden, SC. Dean was the Meet Winner at both events, with Niko second and High Score Veteran in LGRA and Ayla second and BOS in NOTRA.
Meanwhile, Cora decided to cooperate in her scentwork trial and finished her Scentwork Novice title, only a weekend behind her sire, Fly! Congratulations, Kara!

It was a wet and soggy weekend for the Kamar crew, but everyone had a great time at the NLCC. Fable was the star of the weekend, walking away as a new Field Champion, the NLCC BOB Finalist and with two BOBs and a second place in Specials. Halo, Ayla, Phenom, Knots, Gigi also all took their turns in the placements as well, with Gigi and Ayla winning the Kennel Stake and Ayla and Phenom winning the Breeder Stake. Huge congratulations to all!
While the younger Beezers were off lure coursing, Fly had his second weekend of his new sport: Scentwork! He finished his previous weekend with multiple placements, including first placements, but he stepped up his game for this second weekend. Not only did he finish his Scentwork Novice title, but he finished with lots of placements and a High In Trial! This makes him the first Ibizan to achieve this.

Fable made Ibizan history today by becoming the first Ibizan to title in NACSW, which is the original scent work association. In order to earn this title, Fable and Mackenzie had to qualify in all of the searches at the same day of the trial. These consisted of a Container, Interior, Exterior, and Vehicle search, where the dog searches the area and the handler identifies when the dog found the odor source. The handler must alert the judge when the dog has found the scent. Dogs that have an exemplary search can be awarded a "pronounced" designation by a judge, which Fable earned for his Interior search. Fable located all the odors in just over two minutes.
Obviously, this is a special achievement, and we are all very proud of these two! Fable goes on to join cousin Knots in setting new records in scent work!
Congratulations to Andrea & Knots on Knots finishing his AKC Scentwork Advanced title! They are an amazing team.
Congratulations to MacKenzie & Fable on completing his National Association for Canine Scent Work NACSW Odor Recognition Test! He doesn't look very impressed with his new certificate, but we are proud of him!
Several Kamar Beezers headed to TN this weekend, and had a great time. Ayla was BOB on Saturday, and Gigi was first place in Open both days for both of her majors toward her AKC Field Champion title. She's left only needing a few points. Halo also added some LCX points.
Knots has kept up the pace, adding to his very long name. This weekend he added his Scentwork Buried Advanced title. Go, Knots and Andrea!

Big congratulations to Andrea on a very successful weekend! Knots completed three more Scentwork titles to add to his alphabet soup of existing titles. He has now completed his Handler Novice, Buried Novice and Interior Novice titles. He's a very versatile guy!
