Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Representatives with Wolf’s Lair K9 announced today that the company is participating in the Mondioring Sport.
“It’s an F.C.I. authorized international protection sport developed in the late 1980s by representatives from every major country,” said Carlos D. Aguirre, owner and trainer for Wolf’s Lair K9, a professional dog training business owned and operated by a Marine Corps veteran.
During the competition Aguirre will be a decoy.
Mondioring, Aguirre explained, is a dog sport, which was designed to "level the playing ground" and allow competitors from any of the world's disciplines to compete in a common dog sport.
French Ring, Belgian Ring, IPO (SchH) and KNPV all were represented. The result is a dog sport that combines the best of all of these sports: Mondioring.
Like most protection sports, Aguirre pointed out, Mondioring has a series of exercises to be executed by the dog/handler team in the categories of obedience, agility (jumps) and protection.
At the Mondioring III level, there are a total of 17 exercises, completed without interruption, and lasting approximately 45 minutes.
Mondioring is represented in this country by the United States Mondioring Association. This organization is a member of the American Working Dog Federation (AWDF).
Aguirre stressed that the competition is great for Wolf’s Lair K9 since it trains dogs. Wolf’s Lair K9 has a variety of programs it offers, such as The Lodge and Learn program, which is designed to train dogs and equip them with the fundamentals for a balanced life.
The company also offers in-home training, private lessons, day training, personal protection, and specialized training, such as search and rescue, French ring, scent detection, puppy bite work development and more.
