Agility

Agility is an exciting and rewarding team sport for the handler to guide his dog on an obstacle course. Inspired by equestrian sports, the performance of various obstacles (jumps, tunnels, weaves, table and contact obstacles – A-Frame, Dog Walk, and Seesaw) reflects the dog’s flexibility, speed, control and address and the complicity of the reports of the master-dog team.

Canine Good Neighbor Program

The objective of the test is to identify and reward responsible and caring dog owners as well as their canine partner. The test is not a competition and allows the dog and handler to demonstrate their confidence and partnership in 12 events. It assesses the dog-handler relationship and the ability of the handler to control his dog. The dog is evaluated for its ability to perform certain basic exercises and the good manners it demonstrates in everyday situations.

Obedience

The purpose of obedience competitions is to demonstrate the usefulness of the dog as a companion of man, not simply his ability to perform specific exercises in a competitive ring but also in everyday life. Participants in competitions must complete a pre-established routine, according to the level, following the precise instructions of the judge. The relative quality and accuracy of the team’s performance will be compared and evaluated. This sport is part of the complicity of the dog with its handler and emphasizes its natural qualities.

Rally obedience

Rally obedience is a sport based on obedience with a bit of inspiration from agility and freestyle sports. Different from regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge’s orders, the teams move around a timed numbered course of designated stations, always different, with the dog in heel position. Handlers are allowed to encourage and guide their dogs during the course. The circuit consists of about fifteen stations with the possibility of about forty different movements. In Rally, the attitude prevails over precision.

Rat Sports

Rat Sports are based on hunting and teamwork skills. Historically, rat catchers with their dogs offered their services to farmers to control vermin thus helping to conserve and preserve their cereals and consequently protect the inhabitants from disease. The purpose of the Barn Hunt and the Brush Hunt events are to demonstrate teamwork between the handler and his dog. The dog must display his vermin hunting ability by finding and marking rats in a barn-like or field-like setting in which straw/hay bales are used.  The handler must display his ability to read the dog’s signal.
