    OMD CAMP 2014 was the first official inter-national agility camp orga-nized and hosted by One-Mind Dogs. The OMD Camp offered a one-week long experience full of agility, dogs and positive attitude.

    This is a magazine about that camp and people who came to Turku, Finland to learn how to connect with their dogs.

    A dream comes trueThe OneMind Dogs online service launched a year ago - and during the very first year the OMD Pack has grown beyond all expectations, as passionate dog lovers from all around the world have joined us. We are grateful and excited that we are can connect all these amaz-ing people, who aim to learn to understand their dogs better, and have fun in agility with them.

    OneMind Dogs ultimate goal is to help people understand their dogs natural behaviour. To succeed in this goal, we need to work both on-line and in a real face-to-face environment. Nowadays online learn-ing offers amazing tools and possibilities, not only to learn and de-velop skills, but also to communicate with others across geographical boundaries.

    For many people, the online environment is sufficient to develop skills using videos and interacting with the community. However, we at OMD want to offer opportunities for face to face meetings and learning. The OMD Camp is an event filled with agility, OMD Pack members, learning and lots of FUN!

    We were privileged to organize the OMD Camp 2014 in Finland, the home of OneMind Dogs. We had one of the best agility training ven-ues in Finland, several OMD Coaches to share their knowledge, and absolutely the best voluntary crew anyone could hope for - the camp would have not been possible without them! The most important factor for the success of the OMD Camp 2014 was - of course - the participants! Such a great group of people, seven different nationali-ties, gathered far North for the event in Finland. Each of them was SO passionate, ready to reach their next level in agility, and best of all, everyone had a great sense of humour! :)

    We wanted to share the event with the OMD pack across the globe, and hope that this magazine conveys to you some of the atmosphere and vibe of our OMD Camp 2014.

    CONNECTION! The realization that connection can bring teamwork to the highest level. I am a competitive person by nature. I have had many successes in my agility career. But success at the highest level of competition has seemed just out of reach. But now I know I will get there with simple....CONNECTION!

    OMD CUP 2014The grand finale of the first official OneMind Dogs Camp was the chance for everyone to show off their skills. Campers as well as local Finns attended the exciting OMD CUP judged by Veronica Bache of Sweden. Courses turned out to be a tough nut to crack for most competi-tors, but not for Polish Anna Zukowska.Anna, who has trained with the OneMind Dogs methodology and coaches for a long time, came to OMD CAMP with her two dogs: Chinese crested dog Fido and Border Collie Chila. Anna and Chila were the only ones to make two clean runs in the CUP and they truly earned the title of OMD CUP Winner 2014. Looking back, Anna says she has been able to take what she learnt at the camp and has become better at agility. She wishes other camp participants many successes and happy moments in agility!

    Altogether 31 pairs of handlers and own or bor-rowed dogs took part in the OMD CUP 2014. And an exciting competition it was - fast and with just the right amount of challenge. With dogs own and borrowed, the campers got their taste of compet-ing in agility in Finland. Some fine maneuvers as well as very good sportsmanship were witnessed on the course and the happy campers cheered all the participants to do their very best.

    Attending OMD Camp was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The depth of coaching expertise was phe-nomenal. The benefits of this camp are evident on my coursework and that of my students!
