AKC Competition

AKC Competition Obedience - Beg.

Description: This class is designed for dog/handler teams new to competitive tracking and interested in training their dogs for possible future AKC competition.  This sport will create a great bond, increase focus and leave your dog relaxed and happy.  A dog/handler team follow a person’s footsteps to locate a “lost” object.  It is not physically stressful, so it fits well into nearly everyone’s life (puppies, older dogs, dogs competing in other sports can all benefit).  In this class dogs and handlers will learn the foundation to prepare for AKC tracking titling events.
