News from 2011:
There was a protection training with a little bit christmas spirit on Dec 26. No piles of snow this year, only some strong wind provided by Patrick, but some dwarfs can be found still ;). Some highlights from that day can be seen also on the videos' page. We wish a joyful end of 2011 to everyone!
10-11.12 Aivo is participating in annual FCI seminar for IPO judges, held this time by Robert Markschläger, Günther Diegel and Frans Jansen. Attention all IPO and FH fans, Aivo will be certainly sharing his knowledge in future seminars :).
Kairi and Apollon vom Team Endrefalva, who have been training with us for years (with Aivo tracking and protection, Mari helping with obedience), achieved this year - on top of all - also the titles of best IPO dog and doghandler and best tracking (FH+PJK) dog and doghandler in Estonia among all breeds. Kairi and Apollon had several really good competitions this year:
- winners of Estonian Kennel Union's IPO-FH championship for all breeds
- 3rd place at the Estonian Kennel Union's IPO championship for all breeds
- champion title at the Estonian German Shepard Association's IPO championship
- 19th place at the FCI IPO-FH World Championship
Apollon is also Estonian working champion (IPO) from this year. So being first in both categories of IPO and FH is a logical outcome from this impressive competition season. Congratulations Kairi and Apollon! We are all really-really proud of you!
There is a tradition in our club, that at the end of the year we will have a party, where among all the fun, we are also analyzing the the past year and setting goals for the next one. Goals are actually really important, as they allow to see things more clearly and also assure, that the handler and trainer are both on the same page about training. We always put the goals on the paper and sign them, then this document stands as a little new year's resolution :))
In 2011 dogs and handlers from our club got really nice results from different competitions and we have also interesting season 2012 coming. If we look at our maximum goals, there will be 12 dogs going to for IPO results at different levels and 4 dogs training for FH. Of course, real life can make some corrections and this is normal, but anyhow it will be interesting to see. We are really happy that we have such a good team to train together with and support each other. In the illustrating picture, there is not the writing of the goals happening, but little training for the brains :))
Our webpage in now also in English! There are still some parts of the page under construction, but we are updating them soon!

IPO trial (judge Vilve Roosioks, helper Aivo Oblikas) was a success - 3 teams out of 4, who started, managed to work all the way to the result!
Reet's dog unfortenately suffered from injury from the earlier time, that did not allow them to continue.

Congratulations!! And keep up the good work!
