Yoho Mall x Hellodog

A casual agility race for dogs to compete for the title of the most agile dog! It aims to be both physically and mentally stimulating for dogs’ health and promotes trust between the dog and its handler. Unlike a formal competitive agility sport, this game is intended to let you and your dogs have a good time together!

Date: 3 Aug (Sat)
Race time: 3:30pm – 5:30pm (5:30 – 6:30pm open for the public to play all game facilities)
Venue: Garden, Yoho Mall I
Quota: 15 people & dogs
Entry fee: $300 (all proceeds goes to non-profit Hellodog Foundation)

Contenders are required to complete all three zones and compete to finish with the fastest time to earn the top prizes!

Maze Zone:
The competing dog must go through the maze-like route from a start point to a finish point itself. The handler (owner) can drop a maximum of 3 treats at any point on the route to “guide” his or her dog to walk forward before the game begins. The handler is not allowed to walk together with the dog, but only to cheer for and give command to the dog at the side or at the finish line.

Jump Zone:
Then, the dog shall jump over a few hurdles under handler’s command. The handler is allowed to employ positive reinforcement methods e.g. treats as motivation, to keep the dog moving. To be fair, hurdles will be set lower for small dogs, and higher for big dogs. The height of hurdles is between 6” to 12”.

Trick Zone:
This last exercise requires attention. The dog needs to complete a set of commands the handler calls for, and they are “down” (lie down), “sit” and “paw / hand” (give you its hand) in this exact order on our mark. Then our clock will stop, and we will announce your official race time.
