AKC Obedience Classic 2013
Welcome to the
This newest AKC Obedience event — the AKC Obedience Classic - will be held in conjunction with the AKC National Junior Obedience Competition, AKC Agility Invitational, Juniors Agility Competition and AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in Orlando, Florida on December 14-15, 2013.
No invitation is needed and everyone who qualifies is “invited” to enter. Four classes are being offered: Novice, Open, Utility and a special “Masters” class for OTCH titled dogs.

Entries are open and classes are limited, so it’s time to make plans to attend as an exhibitor, or to come to cheer on your friends. Volunteers are always needed and welcome.
