This is the third and highest level of competition. All exercises are performed off-leash except for the Honor exercise (dog is placed in a sit or down and remains in this position with the handler at the end of a six-foot leash attached to the dog while another dog runs the course). There is a requirement of 15-20 stations with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 7 stationary exercises. A course must have at least 3 advanced signs, 2 excellent signs, 2 jumps and an Honor station. Handlers are only allowed to encourage their dogs verbally, physical encouragement is not allowed. There are 5 signs designated as Excellent signs (can only be used on an Excellent course).
The virtual class will provide videos demonstrations of each exercise, weekly Zoom meeting and private Facebook group.
