Truffle Loves to Track - All the Way to An AKC Title!
Cellier’s Truffle TD owned by Margaret and Thierry Cellier of N. Vancouver, BC, Canada
Truffle is a five and half year old Thai Ridgeback mix who was rescued in California with her siblings when she was still a puppy. She was fostered in Canada and became a member of the Cellier family a couple of months after her rescue.
“Truffle is a hard-working and very bright dog. We started tracking a couple of years ago, and she loves it, rain or shine,” Margaret said. “She tracks once a week in winter time and twice a week in the summer.
“She sometimes needs to be reminded that yes, rules do apply to her, all the time, but she has such a big heart and finds such joy working and pleasing us that she is easily forgiven one the rare occasions she misbehaves.”
Truffle earned her AKC Tracking Dog (TD) title on March 6, 2016 in Bow, WA, at the Chuckanut Dog Training Association test. Truffle is now training for her AKC Tracking Dog Excellent (TDX) title.
Truffle is a member of the AKC Canine Partners program for all dogs - including mixed-breeds and rescues.
