In November we added some new things to our homepage! Under Our Club there is now a link to our club's presentation together with a video. We also added much more information about our trainers in Trainers' section.
The sport season of 2013 is behind us and our team has many nice results to look back to and also this year's Sportkoer's party has been held. Of course this does not mean, that one can let loose indefinitely ;) and trainings are rolling again! On Nov 23th there was a quite colourful set of dogs present in protection training, pictures from this day can be seen under Photos!
20.10.2013 there was IPO competition in Tartu, organized by GSD club "Uran". Judge was Vilve Roosioks, helpers Tuukka Nikola and Tõnu Mägi. There were 2 teams from our club in action, Katriin and Qwinto unfortunately did not pass the C part, but Anu and Hundu did good performance in all parts and achieved first place! Congratulations! The results were following:
1. Estrellest Hurmuri Hundiin & Anu Oks 261p (92/83/86A)
Heleros Qwinto & Katriin Salumaa (94/78/16NG)
Already 4th year in a row, we are organizing unofficial tracking competition for puppies and young dogs called JÄLJEHUNT. Main idea is to give people possibility to
test their dogs before they will be at real competition level. At first it
was meant just for puppies. There were two classes - puppies under 8 months and 8-12 months. But as people also
wanted so-called hobby class, where there would be no age limit, we added also that one. Only criteria is that the dogs could not have been starting at official trials before.
At jäljehunt, the track is 45 minutes old and made by a stranger. In puppy classes there is 1 corner in Hobby class 2 corners. Tracking will be done 2 meters away from the dog (with about 2,7m long leash). In small puppy class it is allowed to place 15 pieces of food on the track, older puppy and hobby class have 10 pieces of food. Every owner sends his or her food placement for the organizers before the competition. Everything else is like in the real competition. Owners can't see how their tracks are layed. They will be gathering somewhere else. They can't give additional commands or help dog somehow etc.
The results of this year's competition were following:
Väike Jäljehunt (younger puppy class):
1. Aivo Oblikas & Daneskjold Hawk (MAL, 6k) - 94p
Hobi Jäljehunt (hobby class):
1. Triin Kalekin & Defendervil Gretel (GSD, 1y7m) - 99p
2. Katrin Lilleorg & Ritast Raju (GS, 3y10m) - 85p
3. Agle Oissar & Nochnoj Dozor Italya (GSD, 1y10m) - 73p
4. Andry Kikkull & Fiorella Iz Korolevstva D'Allba (DOB, 2y8m) - 47p

The last champioships of this season is now behind us - on Oct 5-6 there were Estonian Championships in IPO-FH in Jõgevamaa. The tracking dogs were judged by Pentti Rapila from Finland. All three dogs from our club showed superb work:

2. Estrellest Hurmuri Käbi & Merike Kungla 186p (91/95)
Vyatkins' Vesper & Reelika Reilson (58/95)
Aarne ja Sannu achieved the grade "excellent", that had been unreachable to Estonian teams until that day. So great! Sannu is also first malinois ever to achieve IPO-FH result in Estonia. Merike and Käbi also showed impressive tracking on both days and terrains and achieved grade "very good".
With these results, Aarne & Sannu and Merike & Käbi have qualified to participate at FCI IPO-FH World Championships 2014 in Germany!! Well done!

Ella & Natalija succeeded last year in IPO 3 with high result over 270 points . With such a good dog and right attitude as Natalija is having, she can aim high. We are glad that we can help and be the part of the trail up.
