AKC Obedience - The Foundation For All Venues

Dog-Talk Articles

The DOG TALK articles have one objective - to help give you a better perspective of obedience judging and how it works.  I hope the articles will help your efforts in working towards a better performance.  Remember, the sport of obedience is a team effort to be ENJOYED!  It is not the end of the world if you or your dog lose some points or dosen't earn a qualifying score on a given day.  Some of the best "dog stories" are when things don't go as planned!  Keep the sport in perspective and ENJOY THE TIMES WITH YOUR DOG as they go by so quickly.
