11-12-2016      Jingle Bells Dog Event, KC Pampus , Almere  (www.kcpampus.nl)


They had asked us to give demonstration para-agility and as assistance-dog on their first Jingle Bells Dog Event  on the club  KC Pampus, organised for their 35 years exist!

A very big and nice organised event with free workshops and readings to do and a lot of nice and interesting shops.

Even for all members of this club and all helpers of this day a winter-BBQ at the end of the day!


Joy showed how she can work as assistance-dog very nice, even when there was an agility-course close near her ;-)
There she could run at the end of the day and showed again that also a assistance-dog can enjoy agility-sport!

Also Jett showed a few parts of the demonstration assistancedogs and I was very proud of this young dog of 7 months old yet ;-)
Even for her a little demonstration para-agility...just to stay for a jump ( with the board on the ground) and wait for the command to go througt the tunnel....just a start of the agility-training!

She likes both to do, that's the most important!!



18-09-2016                                 Dorpsfeest Hoogland, Hoogland ( www.dorpsfeesthoogland.nl )

The  Dorpsfeest of Hoogland, this year being hold from 15 tuntil 18 September, is always a very nice and big Event, organised by a lot of volunteers!

I was invited with my dog Joy, to give demonstration of our Attempt Record "Live- agility obstacles" made by children!

Even Mandy van Laar, with her dog Lizzy, for Attempt Record "live Hoopers- obstacles".


Together the children of Basicschool De Biezen in Hoogland, we have trained more then one year for this Record.

It was started as a Project "working together children and dog" and after some months there was arised the attempt for a Record for a Jumping-agility course and 60 weave-poles, all make by children!


We trained the children to keep calm, not be affraid for Joy who can run very enthousiast and perhaps you can f touch her tail......and  she can make a lot of noise by barking.


The hole Jumping-course was ready, totall 11 "live- obstacles" of children wich Joy will run two times, then we have a real Jumping -course of 22 obstacles.

We had 5 jumps, 2 tyres, 2 long-jumps, 1 tunnel (10 children) and weave-poles of 12 children.

All done in a great ring of 30 x 50 meters with a lot of interested parties and ofcourse family and friends of the children!


Joy did enthousiast her work and our Record was succesfull!


After us Mandy van Laar was running a "live Hoopers-course "of 8 obstacles, two times running,  with her young dog Lizzy a border-collie.

Even they have showed a long tunnel of children. Both succesfull!!



More information of  Mandy on her website: www.doktersnuffel.nl


Here we go for a  Try for Record of 60 live weaving-poles , made by children...when we finished we heard there were standing 62 children ....and about 50 meters ;-)


Last control for me and explain all children to stay just we have put them...because a little shift will give for Joy the possibility to go out of the weave-poles ;-(

Extreme concentration for me and Joy....will we manage?


YES...we have done ;-)


last control!

the first weave-pole is okay....there we go for the rest, 62 to go!


concentration for Joy and me!

the last weave-pole....we have done!!!


As "finishing-touch" my young dog Jett, nearly 4 moths old, running a little "living tunnel" of 8 clildren, included my grandchildren Isabel and Fabian ;-)

For Jett her first demonstration...and she liked it very much, just before I could say  "go " she was running!


there she goes...little Jett!
