Obedience (OB) training teaches a dog how to act in a co-operative and controlled way. Emphasis should be put on establishing good contact between the dog and the handler and on achieving the dog’s willingness to obey even when at distance from the handler. Handler and dog should display a good overall relationship.
These rules and guidelines have been compiled to promote the sport of obedience and to support competition across national borders.
These rules and guidelines are applied at obedience trials in countries where the Kennel Clubs have chosen to follow them.
In international trials with CACIOB, the class 3 rules must be followed from 1.1.2016.
Results from other obedience trials with different performances, but which meet the corresponding requirements should be acknowledged.
