Pet Asia Agility Invitation Cup 2013

JJ, Prince and Meteor are invited to Pet Asia Agility Cup 2013. The event was held at Marina Bay Sands.

Today is the day … we have to report at the loading and unloading area and entered via loading and unloading carpark which lead us to the convention Hall B.

Upon entering the hall, this is NOT wat i luv to see cos no carpet 😦 We have the 1st round which is knockout match only 6 fastest dogs of the cat will go for the final. Prince was the 1st dog and this crazy old man just ignored the slippery ground, he looks like skating in the ring, he missed his weave and knocked one bar. 2nd to go is JJ, a smart girl indeed, after 2 jumps , she decided not to run and jump, she choose to walk and jump. The only time she run was at the dog walk , A frame and teeter. Last dog was Meteor, he was not as crazy as Prince, however he also having difficult in doing the weave and every jumps, you could see him slide and he trying his best to brake. End result , Meteor got the fastest timing and followed by Prince.

Meteor and Prince, both went into the top 6 and had their final run. Due to the lesson learnt from the 1st round, for 2nd run, used different technique inorder to assist the boys from sliding, slip etc but at the same time they could run fast. With the changes, Prince successfully weave through the poles and jump without knocking down the bar. However sliding after jump was still unpreventable. Prince managed to get a clean run with fastest timing. As for Meteor, he made a fault. With that, Prince won the 1st placing with his fastest timing follow by Meteor, 2nd . So proud of my two old man, as they are competing against the young promise dogs.

Pic of the days .. enjoy:D

Agility

Agility is Fun at the same time might be dangerous ..

Not only that , anything can happen even for a experience agility dog .. Lucky i managed to catch/support him when he slipped and fall from the dogwalk. I followed the dog moment/force to prevent any injury to him. I then DQ myself and left the  ring to check on him and great that he was not injured:D

So handler, open eyes and ears big big . Stopped no matter whether ur dogs still running or not cos i do see handler still running the dog even they know that their dog leg or other parts hit onto the obstacle.

A check on them is always safer than just carry on even though u think they are fine.

1st Agility & Jumper trial for Yr 2013

Date : 10 March 2013

Venue : West Coast Dog Run

Weather was good but ground was muddy and dogs taking part as follow :

Prince – 2 agility & 2 jumper

Meteor – 2 agility & 2 Jumper

JJ – 2 agility & 2 jumper

Tira – 2 jumper

Smash – 2 agility & 2 jumper

Whole trials, only Meteor and JJ managed to Qs. However Im v happy with Prince and Tira performance . They followed my cue and stay focus, unfortunately due to either dropping of bar or bypass, they didnt managed to get a clean run.

I also very happy with Meteor and JJ performance as both really run for me and they enjoyed the whole trials.

As for the youngest dog, Smash , not sure why , he was very crazy and hyperactive on the day. He seem to have full of energy that need to burn although past 2 days, he had been running at the dog parks 😦

Result :

Meteor : 2x 1st in Open agility & 2x 1st in Master Jumper. With the Qs, Meteor gained his new title , ADX

JJ : 2nd in Novice Agility. A lil girl that i dun expected much from her cos she is not as athletic as the rest of my shelties. However she gave me a surprise by gaining a AD title. A 2nd title after her Sin Champion .

Here are some of the videos that other trialer recorded.
