OBEDIENCE

UK Bully Kennel Club Obedience Competition

 

As we are a new club, we aim to introduce new activities at each of our events to help promote a healthy and fun relationship between you and your furry companions. 

 

Launching our Obedience Competition at the June 2022 show. Each entry will have to follow a set of pre released commands. This then gives you the opportunity to teach and work with your dog prior to the competition. 

 

We will be starting at the introductory level and working upwards in difficulty at each event. 

 

You will be able to complete two levels at each event for example, Introductory and Pre-beginners at the June event, Beginner and Novice at the following event and so on. 

 

You will be scored between 1-10 for each command by the judge. Examples listed below. 

 

Heel (on lead) 1-10 

Heel (off the lead) 1-10

Sit and wait 1-10

Down command for 2 minutes 1-10 

Retrieve 1-10

 

Total of 50 points available 

 

You will need to score minimum of 40 points to collect your certificate for that class. 

 

Once a year we will hold the annual UKBKC obedience championship. You will need to have collected enough points at the shows leading up to qualify into the championship show.
