  1. Just out of curiosity, I'm wondering how the world of dog training is served by having yet another place to gain titles with, presumably, another set of standards for how things will be judged. It seems to me that when titles are granted by organizations with a history in the sport, rather than individuals, that it ups the odds of people coming together, learning from each other and refining the rules together.

  2. Hi Lynn,
    I can understand how one would feel that way. I created these titles because I also compete in many other organizations with my dogs doing canine freestyle and have always been a bit irritated by the way they judge and some of their rules. I also also wanted to be able to help novice freestylers by allowing some reinforcement in the ring. It is challenging keeping your dog motivated for 2 minutes and weening the dog off the reinforcement instead of just going cold turkey. :) Many of these rules were developed when Emily Larlham and I had our freestyle club with lots of members, but once she moved it was too difficult for me to keep it all up. I have been competing in dog sports for 8 years and personally don't like live events for many many reasons, which is just another reason I created "yet another place" for people to earn titles. I think the more the merrier. Like I said I compete in many organizations with my dogs and I would enter other peoples events if they had them. :) I love doing anything that will require me to be able to spend more time with my dogs. :) Hope that clears things up a bit. :)

  3. I may be interested (though competing in yet another club is a bit daunting) but I can't find the information on your linked page. I would like to be able to easily read up on the requirements for competition.

  4. If you go to the and at the top menu you should see titles, then click on the tile you are interested in and then you will see pdf forms of the rules as well as entry forms. Hope that helps.
