Handling360 Video Contest 2017 – Grand Finale!

Posted on 11/11/17 36 Comments

Welcome to the final round of our Handling360 Video Contest! If you have just joined us, we have been sharing short video stories over the past few days that highlight the diversity of our agility handling community, and the confidence that has grown for each and every team. These stories are representative of every person in our Handling360 community and we are so proud of what everyone has achieved!

Scroll down to view and then vote for your two favourites here in the “Grand Finale”. In this round, the top six videos as voted by you are competing for THREE winning spots. Our generous sponsors have donated prizes to the top three winners. Not only that, but we are also drawing a further two prize winners at random from all our entries, so in total we have five winners. A big shout out to our sponsors!

Your Vote Decides the Winners

Watch the six videos below and honour your two favourites with your vote! (Remember: as you are voting, you must select both at the same time before you click the “vote” button, as you can only submit your vote once). You can still view the Round One, Round Two and Round Three videos, each is worth visiting.

Deciding on only two in the final round is not easy, but we know you can do it!  Voting will stay open until midnight Monday, November 13th, 2017 (Pacific Time).

The top three stories that you choose, and two additional contestants chosen at random from all the videos submitted, will EACH receive a gift pack including the FIVE amazing prizes listed below.

    Well done to all. Great stories about your agility journey…especially Sally and Finn. Agility is about you and your dog the relationship and communication. Sallys story shows that it is an all inclusive hobby/sport which has no measure of ability or disabilities. Remember to enjoy each and every achievement

      Thank you Renate. I loved your video – especially the basket on your bike for your adorable little dog. 🙂

        Monday, November 13, 2017 at 11:31am

        Thanks, Sally. Lulu loves the basket, too! Sometimes after a long walk, she tries to climb up the bike by herself, to get into it… 🙂

    AH… all the vids brought tears to my eyes- the wonderful perserverance, joy and desire that H360 brings out in dogs and humans. I admire all the Mamas and their furkids. SO tough to have to pick just two. All are winners

    Happy continued H360 journeys to all!

    all of my family wants to vote for Vania but it keep telling them they have already voted what the heck


    • Lisa Rousseau says:
      Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 12:32pm

      Hi Kandy! You can only vote one time from one IP Address. So if they are all in the same home that has the same IP address it won’t allow them to vote again. Hope that helps!
