AKC Obedience Changes

Go here, right now.  I'll wait:  http://images.akc.org/pdf/events/obedience/2014_OAC_Fancy.pdf

WOW!  I am in utter shock at what the committee recommended.  I thought everyone would drop dead before some of these changes were proposed!
- Leashes on dogs in stays!
- Dogs who NQed not being invited back for stays!
- Only 1 group stay of judges choice!
- Broad jump on both sides!
- New P-UDX and P-OTCH titles based on scores!
And the list goes on!

Now go here: http://www.tfaforms.com/336185#
Rate every suggestion.  Write thoughtful comments.  Make your voices be heard and pray that AKC listens to even 25% of the proposed changes.

Thanks for sharing! I likely would not have seen this!

There are some things I really liked (the P-OTCH!) and reducing stay timing (selfishly it's boring to train - boring to watch - boring to judge). And there were some things that made me sad - removing the advanced teamwork class - I want to give it a try!

Those changes sound really promising! Thanks for sharing!
