After taking an eight year break from competition, Perondi comes back flashier than ever! Flashy Ferrari is her name and flying disc is her game. Chris and his new star Ferrari (3 years old) placed 1st in the west coast Ashley Whippet Invitational world championship qualifier series on March 20th! Perondi showed the world he wasn’t just a “one hit wonder”.  😛

Perondi had not competed since the 2002 Crusty Classic which honors friend Steve Walsh. Prior to that year he placed 2nd runner up with his first superstar “Extreme Pepper” in the 2001 Incredible Dog Challenge Nationals at Purina Farms in St. Louis, MO and the same year they also took Overall Champion (1st place) in the first ever Crusty Classic. Perondi’s big year of competition was in 2000 whereby he and Pepper won the Nationals at the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge.

Perondi exclaimed, “Going to compete after being away so long was such a fun experience for me. I was able to mingle with old friends and meet lots of new ones. Sometimes you just need to get back to your roots and remember where the initial passion all began. This dog sport is what ignited my dog training career back in 1998 and I’ll never forget all those who encouraged me from the very beginning.”  By winning this qualifier Perondi and Ferrari are invited to the World Finals to be held in Naperville, IL on September 5th, 2010. But the question remains… will they be able to get away from their busy nationwide tour schedule to make it. Only time will tell!
