19-06-2017: After day one at the Danish Cold Game Championship, Ms. Pia Bielefeldt and Ravensbank Economist (Mynte)
was on a brilliant 2nd place, only one point behind the leading dog. The semi final yesterday, had two posts. The first was four marks of very high difficulty. In the "paws" of Mynte, the challenge almost looked easy, and still with a good deal of energy. Not a hand or a whistle from Pia. Just "get on" and "leave it". Personally I enjoyed to see a handler and a dog being so united.
Post no. two was a pretty long water blind with distraction. The first 30-40 meters Pia could not see her dog, and once beyond that the distance across the lake was a challenge. The first part went ok, but Mynte spent too much time to cross the water, and just before she was in the bird's area the judge asked Pia to call Mynte back.
Even though we know, that Pia participated in the championship to win, she can still be very proud of her own and Mynte's performance. Up and until the last bird we saw only brilliant dog work. And what a teamwork. Well done!
