Today I had signed Ninja up for the FCI BH trial (begleithundtest/ferdselsprøve). BH is a trial which I know of only one other Rhodesian Ridgeback in Norway who has passed this trial before, and thats her grandfather Sheriff!
The test consists of temperament test, companion test on the training field, heeling on leash, helling off leash, sit exercise, down in connection with recall and down under distraction. It also consists of testing in traffic, encounter with a group of people, encounter with bicyclist, encounter with cars, encounter with joggers or inline skaters, encounter with other dogs and behaviour of the tethered dog towards other animals when left alone. For a slower and less motivated dog like the Rhodesian Ridgeback, the obedience in this test are really not an easy task. But I’m proud to say that Ninja passed the test, and at the age of 21 months she can add her second title to her name. Her new name is now RL1 BH Wayosi Chattahoochee!
