Bond with Your Dogs at the 2nd Team Kovu Dog Sport Cup on November 28


The first ever human and dog outdoor adventure challenge, 2nd Team Kovu Dog Sports Cup is set to happen on November 28, 2015 at the Greenfield City Sports Field in Paseo Center, Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Expect a whole day of fun activities for you and your dog.

Yesterday, I met Carl Michael de Leon of TeamKovu Enterprises. He shared his and his American Bulldog Kovu’ experiences in attending different dog events around the metro. I have a big heart for people who love and value their dogs so much as I grew up in a family who can’t live without a dog in the house.

TeamKovu was created in memory of Carl’s dog Kovu, to continue the legacy of promoting an active human and dog lifestyle. Nine years of professional dog training experience has helped Carl come up with the following obstacles for Team Kovu Challenge:

Bamboo TeePee Maze 
Horizontal Ladder Walk 
Crawling Pit 
Pull Power 
Bamboo Bridge 
Hurdle Overload 
Artifice Box 
Uphill Battle 

These challenges are more or less the same with other dog challenges held locally or otherwise, but inspired by Carl and Kovu’s real-life adventures together. He incorporated the use of bamboo to showcase Filipino style. Rigid dog training is not a requirement to finish the challenges. Likewise, big or small dogs, of any breed (at least 6 months old) can join as teamwork and bonding with your dog is the key for you to finish all the challenges with the fastest time. Participating dog owners below 13 years old must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian. You can check out Team Kovu’s Facebook page for details of each of these obstacles for you to be at least prepared on what to expect during the event.

There will also Beginners’ Fun Challenge, Philippine Canine Sports Alliance (PCSA) Official Agility Trials, All American Bulldog Show and Photo Contest.

A reasonable amount of registration is required to participate (check out TeamKovu website.) Percentage from registrations will go to Island Rescue Organization (IRO), a non-profit animal welfare group based in Cebu. Its Executive Director Ms Nena Hernandez will share awareness on their advocacies.

Expect freebies from sponsors like Royal Canin, Ezy Dog, Vitality and Pet Discount.

I can see that this will be a perfect time to bond with your dogs. See you on November 28! Live it up!
