Crossings Vineyard: Newtown, PA

We stopped at Crossings Vineyard after visiting a War Dog Memorial with Lager to celebrate Veterans Day.

The vineyard was situated on beautiful grounds, and had a really neat tasting room!

 

War Dog Memorial: Bristol Township, PA

To celebrate Veteran’s Day, we took Lager, our retired Explosives Detection Canine, to the War Dog Memorial in Bristol Township, PA.

 

Lager Begins Nose Work Class

We thought it may be a good idea to continue to give Lager’s nose a work out.  We signed him up for K9 Nose Work Class at Wonder Dogs, which is where we had taken both Cello and Hooch for their puppy training.  Lager LOVED it, and although he was being taught to identify a completely new scent, he picked right up on this game, and is having a blast!

Lager Finding Hydrogen Peroxide

Since Lager has joined our family, we have tried to keep his nose busy so that he can still feel like he is doing his job.  Here is Lager finding Hydrogen Peroxide in our home.  Hydrogen Peroxide is just one of the 30-plus explosives ingredients Lager is trained to identify.

Pretty impressive!

Delmarva DockDogs Lets the Dogs Out: Elkton, MD

With the hopes of getting Lager an invitation to the 2015 DockDogs World Championship held in November, we took a short day trip to Elkton, Maryland with Lager only, since Limoncello and Hooch had already earned invitations for multiple disciplines.

Fox News Features Lager !

Bill Rohrer from Fox News did a story on Lager!  It was nice to meet Bill – he was so nice, and made us feel very comfortable while filming the story at our home.  Brian and I had great fun doing this story, as Lager is a very special pup!
