There were plenty of happy queues in town this weekend as dog owners – eager to show off their pooches – flocked to the biggest agility trials held outside of Melbourne. It was the first time that Warrnambool Dog Training School’s Obedience & Rally Trials has been given the green light to continue in two years, following reasons relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trial secretary Gordon Baldwin said the event at Harris Street Reserve was a huge success. “It went really well, it was the first we’ve been able to hold since COVID-19,” Mr Baldwin said. “The March 2020 trial was our last and everything was shut down afterwards. It was our first for a few years. It was really good, we had 1317 entries, which equates to about 121 people there. “It’s the biggest trial outside of Melbourne and you could probably say it’s the biggest trial in Victoria.”IN OTHER NEWS: The agility and jumping test started at 8.30am while the obedience and rally round began at 9:00 a.m. All canine entrants were separated by size from small to large, before being divided into experience levels with ribbon prizes for first, last second and third place Now just one tap away with our new app: Digital subscribers now have the ability to get news faster, at their fingertips with The Standard: Our journalists work hard to deliver local, up-to-date information to the community.
