Welcome to Companion Dog Sports Program, where obedience showing is fun again………… My ownership of the CDSP obedience venue since 2010 has been very exciting.  I have continued the good work started by St. Hubert's. I have made, and hopefully will continue to make, enhancements to this growing obedience sport. I am very happy to say this venue allows not only purebreds but also mixed breeds and even dogs with disabilities to compete in and enjoy this FUN style of obedience. In the years to come, I would like to increase awareness of CDSP to help make it a widely recognized obedience venue. I will help clubs already hosting CDSP shows continue to host more shows and increase awareness of the "new" sport of obedience. I started trialing in Novice CDSP in 2010 with my Golden Retrievers, Troy and Fly, and my Sheltie, Breezy, and very much enjoyed the challenge of the class and the atmosphere of the day. Please browse through the web site as I am sure you will want to get your dog registered and get out there with your canine companion to "strut your stuff" along with the rest of us who are enjoying the sport again.

Starting January 1, 2018 - Announcing a new way to earn CDSP titles! Because regular CDSP trials are not available everywhere, and the burden of bringing in qualified judges is out of the reach of most small groups, CDSP is offering the option of working toward an obedience title by submitting videos of a performance. Video registration will be maintained separately, and titles will not be transferable to the parent CDSP organization. Marguerite Plank, an approved CDSP judge at all levels, will be the coordinator. Because the support, encouragement, and companionship—and, yes, pressure—at trials cannot be duplicated, exhibitors are encouraged to attend trials if they are able to do so. Titles that are earned through video submission will be distinguished with a small “v” at the end, for example, CD-Cv for a video-based CDSP Novice title. All videos will be evaluated by approved CDSP judges. At least two different judges will be used to evaluate the three qualifying runs required for a title. For the time being, CDSP Video will use the Facebook platform for communication. If participation supports it, a freestanding web site may be the next step. Check out the Facebook page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/cdspvideo/ or send an email to the coordinator: CDSPvideo@gmail.com.
