Torch
The dog on a mission.
There is no other way to explain Torch other than this and it fits perfectly once you do meet him. Never have I had a dog so serious about life, yet patient and understanding. Everything we do is done with focus, heart, and talent, but I have had to change directions with him multiple times. After Crumpet, I wanted a tri-colored Corgi bitch and going to see an available litter, I came home with a male puppy. As Torch grew up, I showed him in the breed ring to five points, but we never could seem to get the judges’ attention to complete the championship. We did however get to hang out with Corgi people and enjoyed the ring experience.

In concurrence was Agility and Obedience, which I thought a working personality like Torch's would enjoy. After only a year in training, I started him in AKC’s FAST, which proved to be fast and fun and the title was completed with four legs. I was running Niven on another level and had to learn to juggle ring conflicts to continue. When Torch was entered, Novice titles were achieved and one Open FAST leg obtained. Corgis in Obedience can run hot or cold, Torch sometimes flew along in excitement and other times giving me grief. He does love to perform Rally Obedience and has one leg in Cynosport Level 1, but I would like to get him out in AKC as well for kicks and giggles.

The bottom line is that every dog has its sport and I was not finding Torch’s. Everything I asked him to do, he did and has some titles and legs to prove the point. There always was that “something” that was missing in his attitude. We have attended Tricks classes and Freestyle seminars, we tried herding sheep and duck, and we spent time walking through the forests of French Creek State Park. I still could not get Torch to indicate what he preferred to do every weekend.

When the opportunity of a Nosework class popped up, I decided to give it a try with Torch. As this is truly an independent sport, he was hesitant in the beginning, but it did not take long to figure out the game. In the shortest time experienced, Birch odor was learned and soon after Anise and Clove introduced. Currently he is certified to trial on all NW levels and had a nice go at his first NW1 trial at the end of October. There Torch decided Containers all had odor and there was nothing I could do to convince him otherwise. A second attempt earlier in 2016 resulted in another "miss", this time during the Interior search. It took me some time to figure out the cause and then working through possible solutions to help iron them out. We had the opportunity in September to try the NW1 again, this time with a stunning result. Torch completed the NW1 with a Pronounced title, took 1st place in Overall Searches with a combined search time of 38 seconds, and 2nd place in Vehicles.

I really look forward to what our future holds in this sport. Torch has been dragging me across parking lots, climbs five feet of unstable footing, slinks under six inch restrictions, and howls in the car while waiting his turn. Am I sorry I found his sport? Nope. I should have seen this years ago. Find us….it will be easy because Torch will be the one howling to get working.
