SINGAPORE: Some 2,000 animal lovers and their pets got together on Sunday at a carnival at East Coast Park to mark World Animal Day. It was organised by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). Apart from fun and games, the event was also about educating the public on animal neglect. One highlight was the dog agility competition to test if a person has the skills to train and handle dogs. In a timed obstacle course, the dogs cleared hurdles, weaved through a line of poles, scaled ramps, and burst through tunnels. Pet owners were also given tips on how to control their dogs. "The dog learns when to play, and when not to play. So the principle behind this sport is what we call balance-drive. If the dogs don't exercise, they get frustrated, but we teach the dog - okay now you can play, and now you 'switch off'," said dog trainer Stanley Yee.
