Obedience provides great stimulation for your dog and helps keep
their brain active. Obedience Shows are held all over the country
for each of the classes, giving you the opportunity to compete
regularly and meet likeminded people.
Progressing in Obedience
To find out how you qualify for more advanced classes and what

Every year the Kennel Club organises three prestigious Obedience
competitions at Crufts. For more information about the

Obedience Liaison Council
The Obedience Liaison Council is here to enable competitors and
Obedience clubs to communicate with the Kennel Club. Want to get
your voice heard? The Council is the key channel for you to make
positive changes to Obedience. Proposals from the Council can
result in fundamental changes in KC policy which means they're
valuable to everyone involved in Obedience. Made up of 17
representatives from all over the UK, the Council meets twice a
year to discuss matters that may affect you. For more information
