2011 Vt State Iron Dog Competion
« on: September 28, 2011, 08:37:15 PM »
So this Saturday we are running the Vt State Iron Dog Competition again. Last year Strum and had a total blast.
It's was such a great time and fun challenge! The police K9 do demo's as well- very cool. I am try'n to get a friend to run Sophia in it too.

The 1.5 mile course with over 20 obstacles for you and your K9 partner to overcome is designed to simulate real world Police K9 deployments.The course will have a water crossing, K9 carry, a really big hill to climb, a bunch of culverts, and so on. We are trying to make this year’s course a memorable one. Be ready to run, climb, fall, think hard, and get muddy.

The K9 carry is at the finish and it's 50 yards. It hard carrying a 72lb boxer 50 yrds after running the course. Some of the GSD are huge to so I should not complain!

Here are a few pics of us at it last year.

yeah it is one of the worst parts! Maybe I run Sophia this year instead. 52lbs is easier on the back.

SURE Dawn! My one friend backed out. MY BF does not want her to run it because he does not want her to get hurt.

I can definitely understand your BF's concerns. Poor girl. You put alot into making her well, I know how easy it is to get paranoid after going through that.
