2nd USDAA International Dog Agility Sanctioned Trials Group Picture
We had our 2nd USDAA International Dog Agility Sanctioned Trials at West coast Park Dog Run on the 5th & 6th April 2008. Our trials started at 9am and ran till 5pm.This is the first time we are having an Agility Trial spread over such long hours for a two day event.
We are very honoured to have the President of United States Dog Agility Association Inc, Mr. Kenneth Tatsch. With his vast knowledge and experience, Kenneth is both a mentor and inspiration to us all. His boldness, determination and perseverance have set him a class above the rest.
We were troubled by heavy rains and thunderstorms during the last 2 weeks. God has again been kind to us, our weekend weather was great only a passing shower on later part of the Sunday’s Event which cooled down the grounds and our dogs. We have also seen an increase in the number of participations. Now we have 18 participants, and we have awarded 26 Qualifying Ribbons to the group.
We ran the Championships and Performance Titling Programmes and 2 International Tournament Programme, the Grand Prix of Dog Agility and Dog Agility Steeplechase. Everyone was competing through our local qualifiers for both the Grand Prix of Dog Agility and Dog Agility Steeplechase to get a foothold into the Cynosport World Games 2008. We are also raising funds for our Singapore World Team selling our limited edition World Team Ts and Caps.
We were hoping with the introduction of this Great Dog Sport of Dog Agility and it's World Championships, we are able to Promote Excellence in the Sport of Dog Agility!
