Version 4 of the guide is effective at trials beginning May 1, 2018 due to obedience regulation changes establishing replacements for group exercises in Open, and combining the Novice group sit and group down into a single exercise. Sit/stay- get your lease is a new exercise, as is Command Discrimination in open.

NOTE: Version 3 of the guide is effective until April 30, 1018. in December 2015 obedience regulation changes established Preferred classes , replacing the PRE- classes, to parallel the regular NOVICE, OPEN, and UTILITY classes.  Preferred classes have no group exercises, and minimum jump height is 1/2 height at the withers. The individual exercises are largely similar to those in the regular classes.
