An enjoyable day at the Wood Green Animal Shelter competition last weekend which was hosted by Cambridgeshire Flyball Team. Well done Rovers who finished 2nd in Division 4. Rovers ran their fastest time this year with a 19.43 seconds and broke out on that occasion and nearly breaking out a 2nd time. Rovers still have plenty of scope for tightening up on their changeovers so hope to see them break into the 18's in the new year. Rookies our Intermediate team finished in 3rd place which was a great result considering that for all bar one of the dogs it was only their 2nd competitive race. We are really excited about the prospects for this group of dogs as they gain more experience. Raccoons were seeded 4th and finished 4th in Division 6 again really pleased how the dogs performed with none of them putting a paw wrong. They were just up against faster teams on the day. Unfortunately Racketeers had to go not for competition part way through the day after doing so well in their previous races due to a couple of minor injuries but the dogs are fine and raring to go again. We have our last competition of the year coming up at Halefield Stud on the 8th December which is being hosted by Fenland Firestorm. We will be taking 2 teams to this tournament and then we will be focusing on training during January and February ready to start competing again in March 2020.
