Re: [Admin] Malaysia Dog Olympic Day Q&A

Thanks. Will appreciate any further info dat u cn share with regards 2 d trial.

Just a comment, RM50/ RM25 does appear rather steep for just 1 trial run ... bearing in mind dat 1 run only lasts < 50 secs.

Am trying 2 get friends 2 take part but dey r thinking twice bcoz of d fees n d chance 2 only run d course once. Personally feel dat a lower fee or allowing 2-3 runs per team wld b more appealing 2 spectators n generate further interest n participation in d sport, after all dis is d very 1st time an agility trial of any sort is being held here. Can understand d strict rules if agility is already an established sport in Msia.

Guess its ur prerogative as organisers ...

Re: [groovemaster] Malaysia Dog Olympic Day Q&A

That we will have to communicate with the Judge to see what he say. From there, we will make further announcement if needed.

Nevertheless, what we can do it to have each participant take one official run for the trial and the time and fault recorded (if any) will be used to decide the official winners of the Official Agility Trial. After the official time taken, each participants can be invited to run a further two times to be judged again but the time will not considered for the Official Agility Trial and instead considered as timing for Novice Agiltiy Competition (just an idea that I can think of at present) . Anyway, the organizing committee will discuss on this issue.

Thanks for your feedback.

Great idea! With more attempts over 2 formats, am certain dat most agility enthusiasts will sign up 2 run in d trials. Thks 4 considering n hope d committee will decide favourably on d matter.

Just another matter u may wish 2 highlight 2 participants coz d rules arent dat clear ie. whether or not treats/toys will be allowed in d ring? Strictly speaking both dog n handler ought 2 b running ‘naked’ (without accessories) but u may wanna make an exemption shld d novice competition get d go ahead … coz most agility dogs here r still very new 2 d sport n tend 2 rely on treats/ toys 4 added motivation during d run itself.

Wink My sentiments exactly. Again, can understand d strict rules if agility is already an established sport in Msia n v r running at intermediate or advanced levels.

But d sport is still in its infant stages n most agility folks here arent as fortunate 2 hv deir own equipt 2 constantly train with, particularly d contact obstacles. Even in Western nations, warm up runs r sometimes still seen in novice class trials. At d minimum, dogs r usually allowed 2 try out d contact obstacles coz dese obstacles cn vary quite significantly from 1 club to another.

Dis is only d 1st agility trial n informal participation shld b encouraged. No point in making it so strict n rule based only 2 find dogs struggling 2 complete d course. Allowing practice runs on certain obstacles will go a long way in making d trial n sport accessible 2 all. Just a short 2 minute session for all wld b sufficient.

D basic rule of doing agilityis dat it shld b fun 4 both handler n dog ... n trials shld b an extension of dat.

Agility Trial

Dear Admin,

Can I ask what is the objective of the Agility Trial? Pls correct me if I'm wrong....the word "trial" doesn't it indicate it is meant as a preliminary testing session?

For dogs which have not been exposed to agility equipments, can they take part? From the details indicated in the agility trial, it appears that this 'trial' was meant for 'experienced' dogs & owners.

I intend to train my dog with agility equipments but I do not know whether she's capable, as she has not been exposed before. How can I enrol in an agility trial for beginners before deciding whether or not she can be accepted into an agility class? What are the charges & whether your company could arrange training sessions held near Subang Jaya/USJ areas?

Awaiting your response.

Thank you.

MOYSC

Re: [MOYSC] Agility Trial

Hi,

It actually mean actual competition. To participate in the Agility Trial, your dog need to undergone training for agility sports for many months and you must be able to run your dog off leash to clear a series of obstacles.

To join the agility training, refer to http://www.puppy.com.my/ob/

Cool Great news n will definitely take part. A couple more queries:

1. If v enrol online for the trial, how do v make payment or cn we pay on d day itself?

2. For d Olympic run, will there b seperate male n female handler categories? ... otherwise it will b a real advantage 4 d guys. Wink

Re: [Admin] Malaysia Dog Olympic Day Q&A

Thanks 4 organising d agility trials n games n wonderful effort by d volunteers as well. The course was too challenging for most novice dogs but we still had a great time. Just a few shortcomings to highlight:

1. What happened to the Novice Agility Competition? If it was cancelled, the competing teams should have at least been notified instead of being left wondering and waiting for the 3rd run.

2. What is the official results (ie. timing and faults)? Would be helpful if the competing teams knew the actual results so that we can learn and perhaps improve on our runs in future.

3. What happened to the certificates to be issued to competitors who completed a qualifying run as mentioned in your earlier post?
