 CKC OBEDIENCE 

The basic objective of obedience trials is to produce dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that reflects credit on the sport of obedience. 

Obedience is a sport in which all contestants in a class are required to perform the same exercises in substantially the same way so that the relative quality of the various performances may be compared and scored.
