We are working on AKC style obedience to compete. I guess the difference for me between competition & pet obedience would be the precision involved.

Example-For a 'pet' recall, as long as the dog comes in close enough to reach easily I would be satisfied. A competition recall would have to be directly in front of me & straight.

The dogs body positioning becomes much more important in competition.
