Does anyone know what Brace is?

I'm looking at pictures from a dog show. The handler has two german shepherds with her, receiving an award. Where the sign would normally say what the catagory is, (BOB etc.) it says Brace.

Can anyone tell me what this is?

It's a non-regular obedience class where the handler works two dogs, side by side, at a time.

I've also seen brace classes in conformation shows (not sure if they were AKC sanctioned, rare breed shows, UKC or what).

Gayle, Faith, Ledgie, Scooby
At the Bridge: Andy, Abbey, Tasha, Tex, Echo, Yukon, JR, Too, Niki, Bo, Ringer, Kelly, Honey, Mac, Slider & Bruiser

Oh that's pretty cool. I train them together all the time but they aren't attached to each other and they're off leash. (but they're right next to each other)

I have to try this, it looks like fun! I wonder if it's hard to train?

That is just so sharp looking! (beautiful dog too, can only see one, lol) Is this something sled dogs would learn to do seeing how they have to work in unison?

Now I need to go convince Annie and Harley that they have to be willing to work side by side...I can already hear the protests.
