Companion Dog Sports Program (CDSP) offers five (5) levels of Obedience classes to exhibitors: Starter Novice, Novice, Open, Utility and Versatility. Want to learn more about CDSP and become familiar with the updated rules, class exercises, etc.? This is the seminar to attend.  With Marguerite’s vast knowledge of CDSP as a judge and exhibitor, she will be sharing that knowledge to cover all that CDSP has to offer.  During the seminar you and your dog will be able to work through some of the class exercises and take part in a run thru at the end of the seminar.
