Competition obedience, also referred to as "formal" obedience, requires precision and teamwork as the dog and handler work through a set number of exercises that are called out by a judge.  The exercises never vary (as in rally) and require the team to work with minimal cues.   These exercises include heeling, recalls, and stays and progress in difficulty through the levels to retrieves, scent discrimination, send aways and more.

 

C-Wags obedience aims to provide the challenges that other obedience venues provide (such as CKC) in a way that is more rewarding and fun for the team.  Food is allowed at the completion of exercises, and encouragement and praise is allowed during the exercise.  No group exercises are required at any level, no judge exams and the difficulty of exercises progresses on par with other venues.
