Beginning Utility

This class teaches the basic Utility level Obedience exercises, including

  • scent discrimination
  • directed retrieve
  • directed jumping
  • moving stand & exam
  • signal exercise

Prerequisites: Dogs must have earned the Companion Dog Excellent (CDX) title or have the instructor's permission. All NDTC classes require proof of current rabies vaccination for dogs age six months or older.


Competition Utility

At this drop-in class, the dog-handler team have the opportunity to refine their performance in preparation for showing in the AKC Utility Obedience class. The facilitator is available to help inexperienced exhibitors how to train the advanced exercises, but the more advanced students generally help each other and act as "stewards" and "judges" to give each other formal or informal run-throughs.

Prerequisites: Teams must have knowledge of the basic Utility exercises and the ability to work in a self-directed, self-paced environment. All NDTC classes require proof of current rabies vaccination for dogs age six months or older.
