The Canny Cavalier Obreedience Team
The Obreedience competition consists of a round of team heelwork which is marked on keeping together as a team as well as the normal obedience heelwork marks.

Each of the four dogs then has a set exercise to carry out:
  • Send away to bed
  • Stop on Recall
  • Retrieve an article
  • Scent work
All 6 dogs and handlers have had a chance to compete in the heats and have all done really well. They have had a lot of fun doing it too!

Most of the dogs are also successful show dogs, with 4 out of the 6 being veterans – proving that Cavaliers not only have beauty and brains, but can be healthy and long lived dogs.

If anyone is going to Crufts on Thursday 9th March as well as Toy day on 10th March, why not pop along to the obedience ring around 4pm and support the Canny Cavaliers Obreedience Team.
