WHAT A DOG SHOW IS ALL ABOUT
 
Pocono Mountain Kennel Club sponsors two AKC dog shows yearly in September,
offering breed Conformation judging, Obedience trials and Rally events.

Conformation Events are offered and intended to evaluate the overall
appearance and structure of each breed.  Each of the breed standards are
approved by the American Kennel Club. At a point show, points are awarded
towards a dog’s championship.

Obedience Trials test a dog's ability to perform a prescribed set of exercises on
which it is scored. In each exercise, you must score more than 50 percent
of the possible points and get a total score of at least 170 out of a possible 200.
Each time your dog gets at least a 170 qualifying score, he's earned a "leg"
toward his title. Earn three legs and your dog has just earned an obedience title!

Rally Events . Rally is a relaxed form of Obedience, with three levels of
competition. It is a sport in which the dog and handler work together,
following a course of signswith instruction, as to the next step.  In addition
rally promotes fun and enjoyment fordogs at all levels of competition.
 
 
 Pocono Mt. Kennel Club offers many types of classes for it's members
and the community, having Obedience and Rally classes through out
the year. We also have Canine Good Citizen  practice and testing.
