CDSP Competition Obedience

Seven Week Session - $80 members/$95 non-members

Next session starts June 11th, 2019

Join us at MADTA’s Companion Dog Sports Program (CDSP) class. Learn about CDSP where obedience showing is fun!

CDSP is a natural style of competition obedience, based on dog-friendly training methods, where handlers are allowed to talk to and praise their dogs during most of the exercises.  Another difference is that you may give the dog a food treat at the end of reach exercise. There are no exercises where there are two dogs in the ring at the same time.

In CDSP obedience trials, teams work to earn titles in five levels of classes: Starter, Novice, Open, Utility and Versatility. The exercises performed in each class are based on those in the more traditional venues.

CDSP Competition Obedience is a great complement to traditional competition obedience! It will help you and your dog make a smooth and successful transition from the training ring to the traditional performance ring. CDSP competition obedience establishes a solid foundation in traditional obedience. It is also ideal for veteran dogs, as jump heights have been lowered to three-fourths of your dog’s shoulder height. Disabled dogs may jump even lower heights upon submission of an exercise modification form.
CDSP Competition Obedience is truly ideal for all dogs!
