Obedience dogs can achieve many titles. This competition consists of those dogs that have “mastered” the highest level of the sport. The top-ranked 150 dogs based on Obedience Trial Champion points earned will receive invitations to compete. Entries will then be selected on a first-received basis. There will be 30 dogs entered in this competition.

The first round of competition consists of AKC Open and Utility exercises including a signal exercise; drop on call, directed jumping, retrieve over high jump, scent discrimination and group sit/stay exercise. In the finals round of competition, all teams perform 6-minute routine (designed by the handler) to showcase the broad spectrum of obedience. The Westminster Kennel Club donates $10,000 to honor the winner of the Masters Obedience Championship. The donation will be given to the AKC training club where the winner is a member. If they are not a member of an AKC training club then the donation will go to the AKC Humane Fund.

All breeds are involved in Obedience. The most popular breeds at this time are Border Collies, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherd Dogs. All-American breeds (mixed breeds) are also eligible to compete. Dog obedience is practiced as a sporting activity that demonstrates a handler and dog’s ability to work as a team. The breed of dog may pose certain challenges in training and handling, but a competitor is not restricted as to type of dog. Therefore, dog obedience is a sport for all dogs.
