The terms are confusing! And each dog sport has its own special terms!
We have developed a Chart of Obedience Terms as an example of the terms in one dog sport. To learn more about Obedience and Rally Trials, check out the other FAQs for Trials.
To get an overview of dog sports, check out the Canadian Kennel Club’s web page on sixteen different dog sports. NYOC has members who participate in many different dog sports so we can likely put you in touch with someone who can answer your questions.
