A 10-KUSA week course - which can be extended if required


Handlers and dogs are assessed by Mike before acceptance into the class.

The course is preparation for open competition.

Companion Dog is the entry level class for Working Trials and is made up of three disciplines: scent work, control and agility.

Scent work requires the dog to find a small object in an area 15m x 15m; the handler is not allowed in the scent area.

Control work requires the dog to heel on and off lead, retrieve a dumb-bell, perform a 10 minute down-stay where the handler is out of the dog's sight, a recall to heel and a 20m sendaway.

Agility involves the A-frame, a clear jump and a long jump.

The handler and dog must qualify in each of the three disciplines to qualify in Companion Dog.
