    Heel position – the dog is at the left side of the handler, head/shoulders approximately even with the position of the handler’s body

    Qualifying Score – 170 pts out of 200 possible; all events must be passed. If a dog gets 170 points but has failed one or more events, that dog does not get a Q.

    Disqualification – anything that does not allow the dog to compete according to AKC rules. For obedience, this could include deafness, blindness, aggression, etc.

    NQ – No/Not Qualified; did not qualify on that day

    OTCH – Obedience Trial Champion

    Scent Discrimination – choosing an object marked with the owner’s/handler’s scent from among a group of similar, non-scented objects
