How Obedience Works and Things You Need To Understand
of How The System Works!
You have your dog and you have been to training classes and you want to perhaps have a hobby with your dog and friendly people who have the same interest.
For the first time competitor you can enter:
In obedience we aim to leave the ring with the smallest amount of points. Each mistake you make they mark you a point. So the winner of the class could have gained as an example 2 points this may be the lowest score in the class. This system is the same all the way through the classes. Some judges mark harder than others.
When I judge Pre-Begs or Begs I mark mistakes in 1/4's some judges mark in 1/2's. So you get a greater variety of what the final best score is.
It is always advisable to keep checking the score sheets through the day as many people go home thinking they haven't won anything as results usually go down to 6th or even 8th place. Because they were under the impression that they had lost a lot of marks.
The next class I wish to talk about is:

If you touch your dog while competing then you will be faulted.
My next update will be the novice and Test A Classes.
