    Default Give me a definition

    You're selling me a dog. You tell me the dog has basic OB and is crate trained. I can expect what?
    No axe to grind, no hard feelings, nothing that refers to anything. It's that I have seen a wide range of obedience training in the last year and wondered what your definition might be.

    The dog sits when the sit command is given etc. Not much room for error there eh? There's probably goin to be some adjustment to a new owner and adapting him/her to listen to you. Other than that, OB is OB.
    Dogs have many friends because they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    Sit, come, stay and heel, proofed at least through easy distractions.

    Won't pee or crap in it's crate and is quiet in his crate until it has to do one of them.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    We are way outnumbered here Howard. I'm with you but Ken is maybe closer to what most think and Angie's just making fun cuz I told her Billy had his OB down cold when I sent him to her

    I'm with Howard on this one as well. But it also depends on the age.

    But also agree with Angie. "Obedience is in the eye of the beholder"

    If a trainer is lax with his obedience training then the obedience may be sloppy. If a trainer is particular with obedience then it should be rock solid.
