Iron Dog Competition
« on: September 14, 2010, 09:45:45 PM »
Strummer and I are going to do this event next weekend and my friend is going to run it with Sophia.
It's basically what they use to test police dogs and their handlers but they open it up to the public.
It sounds like a great challenge and a ton of fun!

This is a competition initially designed for Police K9 Teams, but is now open to the public to compete and observe. The main competition is a 1.5 mile obstacle course that requires maneuvering you and your dog as a team through various obstacles to include a water crossing, fence climbs, low crawls, narrow beams, smoke house, and a shooting section. There is also a 100 yard dash to test the dogs’ speed. The course is designed to simulate real life scenarios where the Police K9 teams are deployed. Challenge yourself and your best friend to see if you can complete the course as a team. There will also be several dog related businesses on hand to showcase their products and services along with demonstrations throughout the day.

The Vt Iron Dog race was a total blast. Strummer and I had such a great time. The event was so cool and I'm so excited we did it! The weather was perfect and we met some great people and got to see a lot of cool K9 demos too.

Actually we got the fastest time in our age group but I missed a piece of "evidence" so I totally blew our 1st place finish. I'm an idiot. Oh well it was really fun.  Strum did the 100 yard dash in just over 9 seconds. He really did fantastic and even the handlers of the police dogs commented on well he did. I guess Strum would make a great police K9 but I'd make a lousy cop. LOL.

A friend took some pics so I'll have to bug him for them.
