Having an obedient dog is not only a pleasure for you but it opens up more of the world to your dog. Well-behaved dogs are often welcome in hardware stores, farmer's markets and even outdoor concerts and wineries!
You can show off your dogs obedience skills in the sport of Competitive Obedience. Dog and handler teams compete in a series of exercises and are scored by a judge on each.
AKC Obedience is open to AKC registered purebred dogs or registered mix breed dogs through the Canine Partners Program.
To see obedience dogs in action, be sure to stop by the Ephrata-Moses Lake Kennel Club's Spring All-Breed Dog Show!
