Competing in obedience requires the handler and dog to work as a team. It is simple, but not everyone is able to achieve total focus while heeling and instantaneous execution of commands. The Belgian Malinois is a working breed that is driven to please their handler, given good sound training techniques instilling a positive attitude and a lot of time spent in foundation skills. Here is Shelby showing why she is one of the best obedience dogs in Queensland.
This is the form that won Shelby 4 perfect scores in one year in Open Obedience (ANKC), unequalled in Queensland.
