Recent Obedience and Rally Obedience Rule Amendments
At the September 2017 Board Meeting, the Board approved a high profile amendment to the Obedience Trial and Rally Obedience Trial Rules and Regulations, Chapter 12 – Open Class that we wish to share pending approval of the official Minutes.
The Board supported two equal open streams, one of which includes out-of-sight stays and a new stream that includes changes of position and an in-sight sit-stay. The change of position exercise was modified to reduce the distance to 10 feet, the number of positions changes to four in total and allows command and /or signal. The second stream remains as current Open class. Both streams result in the same titles and qualify for high-in-trial.
