If you would like to be a PKC Show Site or a PKC Obedience Trial Site, please find out about applying.
Obedience Trials are a fairly new thing at PKC. Dogz complete a variety of tasks like Sit Stay and Recall and you take pictures of them doing this. Judges then mark the dogz on how well they have completed the task.
Dogz without 3 OD points are Novices and they compete in the Novice ring.
There are five categories here - all of the fairly basic but they are skills your dogz should know. OD points are awarded.
Dogz with 3 OD points are OD dogz and compete in the Open ring.
Again there are five categories - some slightly more difficult that the Novice classes. ODX points are awarded.
All categories are worth 20 points, so the dogz get a mark out of 100 in total.
The top four dogz are ranked 1-4 and get 1 Point each. If 20 or more dogz are entered, 2 Honourable Mentions are awarded, each earning 1 Point. If 30 or more dogz are entered, 4 Honourable Mentions are awarded, each earning 1 Point.
When a Novice dogz gets 3 OD Points it can Register for an OD (Obedience Dogz) certificate that allows it to compete in the Open Trials.
When an Open dogz gets 3 ODX Points it can Register for an ODX (Obedience Dogz of Excellence).
