What is the Canine Good Neighbour Program?


The Canine Good Neighbour Program is an evaluation of your dog's ability to act with good manners in the community. Canine Good Neighbour's are trusted by the Canadian Kennel Club to act as ambassadors for well behaved dogs within the community, capible of performing basic excercises with good manners in everyday situations.


The Canine Good Neighbour test is an excellent baseline test for your and your dog.

What is an Obedience and Rally-Obedience Trial?


Technically Obedience and Rally obedience are 2 seperate sports. Each with their own demands and requirements.

Obedience is a sport that "is to demonstrate the usefulness of the dog as a companion of man"(CKC 2021, 2). The sport asks that a dog can perform specific tasks for its handler with minimal guidance or input. When done well this sport seperates the chaff from the wheat. check out more here

On the other hand, Rally is designed to "provide a fast-moving and motivational activity that demonstrates the competency of handler and dog" (CKC 2022). This sport is designed to be enjoyable, handlers may speak to their dogs through almost all of its levels and while many people do use sucess in this sport to facilitate learning in others (like obedience) it really is a sport of its own.

This year our trial will be held at Agility World in Acton, Ontario
