This was the first time ever Puppy.com will be organizing the Schutzhund and Agility Trial. Beside having the usually game like "Fastest Recall", "Fastest Eating" and "Musical Chair", this time their introduce some new game. Instead of "Down Stay", they had "Ultimate Sit Stay", "Lead the Troop", "Olympic Run", "Longest Jump" and "Best Canine Twin".

As soon as I reach the field, I saw Shirley had already arrived since 8.30 am. Dunno whether because of being too nervous while waiting for the trial, she isolate herself at the corner of the field. Haha.... But anyway, both Groovy and Russell manage to get their Top 2 placing for the Malaysia 1st ever Agility Trial. Congratulation guys!
The first game that started was the "Olympic Run" around the small lake. While I found myself to be the 3rd female participant to arrive, was so surprise that they only choose the Top 2. What a waste. Groovy, the experienced runner turned up the be the 1st champion of the day. Then later comes to "Fastest Recall". This time a bit different from the previous, with added hurdles in the middle. But anyway, this not a problem for Pacco. As expected, her speed was one of the 'fastest', but she couldn't 'break' and keep on dashing around behind the field. Sign.... Having the open field to run is definately a great temptating for her.
Then next the "Amazing Race" with some cones to weave and a number of short hurdles. Manage to complete it without any major problem, but I realized that I couldn't run at her speed. I think the owner also need to physical training, beside the dog. As for the "Ultimate Sit Stay", was glad that they change the routine from a "Down Stay". Cause Pacco doesn't like to do down stay at the public, probably this make her feel short and unsecure. This round, she manage to stay for some time and only break it when one of the committee member step to near beside her. While I look back behind me, there are only 4 participants left, I felt so proud of her. This definately a record for her, as for the last event, she couldn't even hang on for a second and was the first one to be eliminated. While, Russell and Piper turned up to be the Top 3.
My father came kinda early than expected. But I insist of not going back before I take part in the "Long Jump Challenge" game. Was indeed lucky that they separate the dogs into 3 category, the Large, Medium and Small size. I was so thrill when Pacco was announce to be the Runner-Up for the Medium size catergory. This was the 1st time ever, Pacco get something at the Bandar Utama's event. While, Groovy was the 1st in the Small breed category.
Finally.... Pacco earn her first bad of dog food. Not to forget a thanks to Mun Yee for offering me 2 pack of dog biscuit.
