Scott put the first two months on Hemp and then I took over from there. He was not an easy dog to train. His first year in nursery was limited to only a few small trials because we were not getting along. At one point I was ready to sell him but that seemed to be the moment he turned around and his second nursery year was much improved. By the time he got to the Bluegrass he was consistently placing in nursery and open ranch. The judges noticed and voted him the Most Promising Nursery Dog. Years before, this honor had been bestowed upon Pleat who later, went on to win the whole trial. I can only hope it bodes well for Hemp.
