FROM OUR TRAINER JODY DAVIDSON: 
I’m going to be offering another guided tour of a Dog Show, this time at the HUGE Long Beach Kennel Club show on Saturday December 17. Watch your My Best Friend updates for more information. The Long Beach show is one of the largest in Southern California and you’ll not only be able to see most of the AKC recognized breeds, including some very rare/unusual ones but also dozens of vendors will be set up offering lots of tempting holiday deals and specials for your pups!  contact us at www.mybestfriendobedience.com for more info!

very important info on dominance!

Hi everyone,



Effective in April of 2012, the Board of American Kennel Club has  approved new Rally regulations. There are some changes/clarifications of class procedures and judging. Most important though is that there are about a dozen new signs added to the current list, several of which are in Novice. You can read all of the new information at the AKC website here: http://www.akc.org/pdfs/about/board_minutes/1111.pdf . The Rally info is at the very end of the report. Remember that anything underlined is a change from the current rules/regulations.

The new signs are just variants of the skills required by the old signs. The only real change is the introduction of an early version of a pivot which we started last week. And you’ll have until April to perfect them.
