to the Non Competitive Obedience Association
Visit us on Facebook
Non Competitive Obedience Association was formed to encourage advanced
obedience and tracking training and to enable handlers to earn titles
even when they
cannot get to a traditional obedience trial or tracking test. NCO is a
step" and we strongly encourage participants to continue on to
competition obedience and tracking in other venues!
was created to give everyone the chance to train their dog to high
levels of obedience and tracking and be able to earn titles.
special gear or equipment is needed and we encourage everyone to think
outside the formal obedience box and use objects from the environment
as much as possible for things like obstacles, go out targets etc.
titled dogs should be able to work in the real world in public.
of all, we want you to HAVE FUN and explore possibilities!!!
for titles will be via You Tube video submission.
Performances are pass / fail determined by one of the Associations
Guest judges which are composed of obedience and tracking judges from
organizations and experienced competitors.
