2014 Obedience Advisory Committee - Recommendations


September 29, 2014

Originally the Obedience Advisory Committee (OAC) met in June to discuss the future of the sport and to review the more than 1,000 suggestions submitted by the Fancy. The Committee members put a great deal of thought into the input from the Fancy in order to produce meaningful recommendations that will move the sport of obedience into the future, while keeping in mind the importance of the past. The Committee met again in August to complete the review. Additional recommendations are being published here for your comments.

The recommendations were accidentally posted on September 24th before the committee had a chance to review the final document. The recommendations were immediately removed pending the OAC review. We apologize for the possible confusion. The Committee's review is now complete and the following recommendations from the Committee are being published for the Fancy to review and provide feedback over the next three weeks through October 22nd. Please feel free to share this link with your friends and club members. Only one submittal per person should be provided.

Please read the entire list of recommendations on the PDF document at the link below to see the complete information before providing feedback through the feedback form:
