Working Dachshunds at Field Trials

I returned home after attending a 3 day Dachshund field trial event in Roscoe IL. It was interesting seeing the different varieties of Dachshunds at the event. This was the first time I have attended one of these but will probably not be the last.  The dogs had a great time and got lots of exercise. There was no shortage of rabbits which also made things go good. I took my younger bitch Echo to compete. Echo did well placing 1st in the open bitch category all 3 days and earned her field champion title. I would encourage anyone that gets a chance to attend one of these events and have some fun. It is also a good way to get your dogs prey drive going. I am now looking forward to some blood tracking and deer hunting in the next few months.

    Way to go Echo. I’m sure it’s the first of many to come.
