Achievements:  Will is an amazing dog and faces everyday with enthusiasm.  Despite some major health issues, Will has lead a happy life under Sue’s watchful eye.  He has titled in Obedience (CD and BN), Rally (RAE and UROC), Drafting (NDD. ANDD and BNDD) and most recently Nosework (NNC).  Will became the first Berner to earn a United Nosework title; earning his Novice Nosework Container title in December 2013.

Will demonstrates a strong work ethic in everything that he does.  I believe drafting is his favorite of the activities and he has recently been teamed with Ivy as a brace.  They work very well together as team but are currently shopping around for a new handler who can navigate the narrows.
