Competitive obedience is a Dog Sport where 'handler and dog teams' compete against each other in various tests of obedience at dog shows throughout the country. It has been likened to 'dressage' for dogs.There are several levels divided into classes according to ability and experience ranging from pre-beginners to Championship C.

These problems are best helped by a behaviour assessment leading to a training and behaviour modification plan directed at the individual dog and owners needs.
