Sponsored by the Evansville Obedience Club
“To excel in your game, you must master the regulations and procedures of your game!”
This seminar is open to all obedience enthusiasts who would like to experience a unique and entertaining study of the sport of Obedience. It will be an interactive, two-day, open-to-the-public seminar that will be modeled somewhat after some of the great AKC judging seminars from the past. Understand what Rich and Pat look for as active exhibitors, instructors and judges.
Foundation and Novice related classes will be covered on Saturday. Open and Utility related classes will be dissected on Sunday followed by discussion on the future of the sport.
Lunch and chairs will be provided both days. Current copies of the AKC Rules and Regulations will be available.
Disclaimers: This is NOT a training methods seminar. Although it will be unbelievably informative and entertaining, it will not satisfy any AKC obedience judges’ educational requirements. Rally will not be on this agenda.
Rich & Pat Strong have been approved to judge AKC Obedience Trials for a combined total of over 45 years, scoring more than 200,000 teams. They have been teaching classes for over 50 years and have been training and exhibiting at AKC trials for over 70 years.
