Socialized Pet Obedience Test (SPOT), will soon be available

February 7th, 2016

The Grand River Kennel Club is looking into holding a SPOT Test(the equivalent of the CGN Test) at our April 30/May 1st shows..
Please let me know if there is interest out there..
UKC Introduces New Program: Socialized Pet Obedience Test (SPOT)
For more information, email performance@ukcdogs.com
KALAMAZOO, MICH., February 1, 2016 – UKC’s newest program is aimed at highlighting the importance of having well-behaved and socialized dogs in the general public arena and awarding them a designation as such, the Socialized Pet Obedience Test (SPOT), will soon be available across the country.
Designed and created for all dog owners, new and experienced alike, the founding principle of this test is to teach and promote responsible dog ownership. Through the SPOT program, the United Kennel Club offers owners a chance to prove that their dog is a well-behaved asset to their community by completing a series of exercises that demonstrate these valuable and necessary skills. Each exercise is designed to simulate an “everyday” life experience where the dog can demonstrate that they possess the skills, and have the behaviors necessary, to be considered a “SPOT” certified dog.
The test consists of 10 stations. There are four possible rankings for each station. The dog will receive a rating at each station, varying from “Outstanding” to “Needs Practice”. These exercises are used to demonstrate that the dog is capable of exhibiting desired behaviors that the general public would expect to see in a well-behaved dog. It is NOT intended to be an obedience trial. The SPOT test places value on the importance of responsible dog ownership, and that a well behaved dog is not only a happy dog, but one that will be accepted in a community.
The United Kennel Club believes in “Real Dogs for Real People” and developed this program to reward one’s everyday life with dogs. The United Kennel Club feels strongly that every dog should be an ambassador in its community as a well-behaved canine companion. It is important that all owners strive to set an example of responsible dog ownership by training their dog(s) to display appropriate behavior while on leash and in the presence of other dogs.
