The Terrier Performance Club of Northeast Oklahoma was established:
The North American Sport Dog Association (NASDA) offers several working dog programs: Trailing and Locating, Urban Locating, and Shed Dog. With the Trailing and Locating and Urban Locating programs, dogs track and locate quarry (safely above ground) in specially made quarry boxes. Dogs are judged based on ability to follow a scent line in a simulated natural hunting environment, to locate, mark and open on the quarry. Dogs are judged on a combination of time and accuracy. With the Shed dog program, dogs track a shed ungulate antler with added antler odor.
NASDA events encourage ALL dogs to play the exciting scent games. This includes but is not limited to purebred, mixed breeds, companion dogs, or titled champions.
Trailing and locating simulates a scent tracking activity where dogs follow a scent trail to locate quarry, usually pet rats, contained safely in special made quarry boxes. At upper levels, dogs must be capable of running off-lead.
Brace is a team event where two dogs work simulatenously following the same scent trail to locate quarry. Dogs must run off-lead and should not interfere with the bracemate. Dogs must have earned their individual trailing and locating titles prior to competing in Brace.
Urban locating is similar to trailing and locating in that dogs track quarry, except that there is no scent trail and the search is held in an urban environment. Dogs are run on-lead at all levels of urban locating.
Shed teaches dogs to search for and retrieve shed antlers with added antler odor. Upper levels of shed include distractions.
Lost item recovery is where the dog is searching for a lost article. At level I, the lost item is that of the handler. For upper levels, the lost item belongs to the judge.
Like Urban locating, Urban Challenge Games test a specific set of skills searching in an urban environment. Games are intended to help the dog build confidence working away from the handler and without relying on the handler for verbal search cues. Some hides may be inaccessible. Others may require the handler to indicate when the dog has found the hide. Dogs are run on-lead at all levels.
