Change to Obedience Rules & Regulations: Open Class (Effective January 1, 2018)

There are changes to the Obedience Trial Rules effective January 1 2018.  However, we wanted to provide advanced notice regarding the change to the Open Class A & B.
 
Exhibitors will now have  options within the Open A and B classes and still achieve the same titles.
The Open A Class and the Open B Class will each have 2 options. Exhibitors must indicate on the entry form which option they choose when they complete their entry form.
 
In Open A, exhibitors can choose between entering into Open HA (which remain as in the existing rules as Open A), or Open 18A (which also follows the existing rules except that the Long Sit is replaced with Change of Positions Exercises, and the Long Down is replaced with a Group Sit-Walk around.)

In Open B, the exhibitor can choose between entering into Option HB (which remain as in the existing rules as Open B), or Option 18B (which adds in the new Change of Position Exercises).
