The ASCA obedience program offers competition for all levels of obedience including novice, open and utility classes as well as many various non-regular classes. The purpose of Obedience Trials is to demonstrate the usefulness of the dog as a companion of man, not merely the dog's ability to follow specified routines in the obedience ring. The basic objective of Obedience Trials is to produce dogs that have been trained and conditioned always to behave in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs. The CD (Companion Dog) title is awarded in the novice class. The CDX (Companion Dog Excellent) is awarded in the open class, and the UD (Utility Dog) is awarded in the utility class.
