TRAINING FOR PERFORMANCE

Did you know your dog can earn ribbons, trophies and other titles besides those for conformation Champion? The American Kennel Club has events that are based on how your dog performs activities and how it responds to situations. These events are fun for the dog...and for you!

Doing well at performance events can earn your dog honors, such as the Canine Good Citizen title, the Companion Dog title, Rally Novice, and quite a few other titles as well. Some of these titles can help make your dog more welcome in certain housing communities. For some households, performance titles can sometimes even help lower the cost of liability insurance.

The Great Dane Club of Arizona has members with training qualifications based on successfully earning multiple performance titles, including high placements in all-breed competitions along the way.

Yes, Great Danes do well at obedience! Give your Great Dane a chance at this, and see for yourself.
