Buddy, NW1

Name: Buddy

Handler: Jennifer Baerresen

Titles: L1V, L1C, NW1

Buddy was a rescue from our local shelter. Always a quiet and shy little guy, finding the right sport for him was challenging. This sight hound wasn’t interested in luring and agility was a little scary.  Nosework has helped Buddy become more independent and he loves the game.  Buddy and Jennifer earned their L1C and L1V titles in November of 2019. They earned their NW1 level in Tuscon in January 2020.
