On Saturday 6 July SADAA KZN, held its 1st club trial at Woodlands Sports grounds. The trial was judged by Sandy Thompson (a new SADAA judge) and there were 15 entries including 3 new handlers. A fun event was held after the trial to encourage new handlers to help up and coming handlers and their dogs get used to a "competition" environment. Well done to Taryn and her team. We look forward to many more trials in the future!
50 dogs competed in 2 Agility and Jumping trials as well as a Games trial at
the Pick 'n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival last weekend.
For more than half the dogs it was the first time on an agility course and
the improvement in handling during the weekend was most rewarding.
Hosted by SADAA's newest affiliated club, Knysna Agility Club, Karis and her
Team, (supported by Brett and Plettenberg Bay Agility Club), went out of
their way to accommodate the SADAA judges, Sam and Nadine (PE) and Debbie
(WP). Thank you Montego and Rogz for sponsoring so generously and Knysna
Primary School for providing a really pleasant venue. The attitude of
trainee scribes, time keepers and even a new scorer and the spirit amongst
all the competitors over the weekend in the most amazing Winter weather
contributed to making it a really good week end.
Thank you everyone who contributed in even the smallest way to making Knysna
2013 such a great success!
