After the mistakes, which Armin had done in the obedience training with "Clip", he wanted to make it naturally better with "T-Rex".
Here he considered himself before the entire training way and the duration. Armin let himself time with this dog and tried a great parts new.
Of course also with this dog everything did not run perfectly. Particularly in the defence work Armin had to pay attention to many little things; the structure at that time in this part was not optimally coordinated by the helper at that time with T-Rex's characteristics and was subjected to some misconceptions.
"T-Rex" did his first IPO 3 at the government championship in 2003 (2nd pl.), then followed the state championship (5th pl.).
He should make his third IPO 3 then on dHV-Nationals 2003.
All his trial results are at the bottom of this page.
But one day before he "must" hurts himself by a totally unnecessary and stupid mistake of the self-esteem suffering helper.
Thus with a broken breastbone no participation was possible.
After a break of 8 weeks and only unique training he could shine then however with the IPO 3 and 294 points.
Again a confirmation for us that founded basis training is valuable.
The reward for this was the qualification and subsequent participation at many national championships.
With T-Rex we had a lot of fun each case an not only in the work. His always open, friendly and self-occurrence; his constant work readiness and good humor will always be remembered by us and all the people who had known him really.
We loved him really and it was a great loss when we had to let him go over the rainbowbridge. We think very often of the great time with him.
