"The purpose of obedience trials is to demonstrate the usefulness of the dog as a companion of man, not merely the dog’s ability to follow specified routines in the obedience ring. The basic objective of obedience trials is to produce dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that reflects credit on the sport of obedience."

Would you like to get into the world of competing in Obedience or Rally Obedience, but don't know where to start?
Welcome to Kayenna's NEW 6-week intro to competitive obedience class. We will cover all the basics to get you started towards your first obedience title and will help you to understand the rules of each of the required behaviours.
The objective of this class is to build on the foundational elements essential for successful competition obedience. Those behaviours are focused heeling, both on and off leash. Fast, tight sits, downs & stands and how to get reliable stays and stand for exams. Focus will be on building a good working relationship with your dog to be able to get a fast, reliable response from the dog. There will be a special focus on building engagement and a strong team dynamic.
Prerequisites: Puppy Kindergarten, Everyday Obedience or equivalent classes. Dogs must be able to work around other dog and handler teams and with distraction.
Please Note: When registering for this class it will be found under the Rally Obedience Tab.
