With the support of the Committee for Physical Culture and Sports of the city of Apatity, the city championship “City Dog-2021” was held on the territory of the sports complex “Athlete”, in which the instructor-dog handler of the remand prison No. 2 Vladimir Kamuz took part with his pupil – the German shepherd dog Magnat.
Six of the best athletes in the region decided to demonstrate the training of their pets.
The competition was held according to the standards of applied training. The participants of the competition had to pass a series of qualification tests, during which the reaction of the dog to the muzzle, to the scattered food, to a group of people and other dogs was tested.
In addition, the jury evaluated the clarity of actions when performing elements of the general training course, which are so necessary when moving with an animal in a city. The dog, on the command of the owner, demonstrated different paces of walking alongside, turns in motion, crossing the road on command from the side, performed exercises in the presence of external stimuli in the form of another dog running past with the owner, and much more.
Vladimir and his faithful Magnat performed with dignity, gaining the amount of points that allowed them to rise to the second step of the championship podium. Silver medalist Vladimir Kamuz was awarded an honorary diploma and a medal, and Tycoon received healthy food as a reward.
According to Vladimir Kamuz, he was pleased with the result: the tycoon coped well with the test with external stimuli, for which the dog handler worried most of all, and in general he worked out most of the tests perfectly. The dog handler plans to work on the mistakes and take first place in the next competitions.
