    Working Trials

    Post by Cameron on Tue 29 Mar - 23:03

    Working Trials are a competitive sport based on the civilian equivalent of police dog work. They develop and test many canine skills – obedience and control, intelligence and independence, searching and tracking, agility and fitness. Trials are physically demanding for both dog and handler, but are also great fun and extremely rewarding.

    Training
    Training for Working Trials takes place at societies and clubs across the country, as well as at a number of training weekends and courses, and there is a friendly social scene to be enjoyed. Punitive or harsh handling are not tolerated, and all training is based on encouragement and positive reinforcement, leading to happy, well-trained dogs.

    Structure
    The Kennel Club provides a structure for Working Trials including regulations for trials, training and approval of judges, registration of training clubs and societies, resolution of objections and complaints and sponsorship of the annual Kennel Club Working Trial Championships, the sport’s flagship event. Two-way communication and liaison with competitors and clubs is organised through representatives elected on to the Working Trials Liaison Council, which normally meets twice a year.
