Comment on New AKC Regulations for Obedience Trials

by on July 23, 2014

Important! Some of the proposed changes in regulations for AKC Obedience Trial will substantially affect competition in the obedience ring. Some of the changes are ones you might have wanted for some time. Others you might not agree with at all. Let the AKC know your thoughts by providing them with feedback as described on their website (partially quoted below).

From the AKC Website at http://www.akc.org/events/obedience/obedience_advisory_committee.cfm

The 2014 Obedience Advisory Committee met in June to discuss the future of the sport and to review the more than 1,000 suggestions submitted by the Fancy. The committee members have more than 260 combined years in the sport of obedience! They put a great deal of thought into what the Fancy was asking to change, in order to produce meaningful recommendations that will move the sport of obedience into the future, while keeping in mind the importance of the past. The committee is continuing to discuss additional sport related changes and once complete, additional recommendations will be forthcoming for comment.

The following recommendations of the Obedience Advisory Committee are being published so the Fancy may provide feedback before the recommendations are finalized. Please feel free to share this link with your fellow dog friends and club members. Only one submittal per person should be provided. You should refer to the entire list of recommendations on the PDF document at the link below to see the complete information before providing feedback.

Comments will be taken until the deadline date of:
Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 12 Noon Eastern Standard Time
