What you will have to train

Like most protection sports, Belgium Ring has a series of exercises to be executed by the dog/handler team in the categories of obedience, agility (jumps) and protection. At the level 3, there are a total of 19 exercises, completed without interruption, and lasting approximately 45 minutes. The obedience is based on functionality with the emphasis being on control in spite of distraction. The jumps test the structure and willingness of the dog. The protection phase of the competition requires that the dog demonstrate tremendous control. The dog competes at each level without collar or leash throughout the trial, thus testing the control of the animal from the very beginning. The complexity of the trial field, combined with the demands of extreme control combine to require that the dog be clear-headed with excellent character. Each competition is based in a theme – much like a theatre set up on a field. Props, scenarios, distractions are placed at strategic points on the trial field. While the exercises remain the same from trial to trial, the order and the setup will change with each judge’s own creativity. No two trials are ever alike, thus preventing the possibility of preparing the dog ‘by rote.’
