Welcome to Companion Dog Sports Program, where obedience showing is fun again…………My ownership of the CDSP obedience venue since 2010 has been very exciting. I have continued the good work started by St. Hubert's. I have made, and hopefully will continue to make, enhancements to this growing obedience sport. I am very happy to say this venue allows not only purebreds but also mixed breeds and even dogs with disabilities to compete in and enjoy this FUN style of obedience. In the years to come, I would like to increase awareness of CDSP to help make it a widely recognized obedience venue. I will help clubs already hosting CDSP shows continue to host more shows and increase awareness of the "new" sport of obedience.I started trialing in Novice CDSP in 2010 with my Golden Retrievers, Troy and Fly, and my Sheltie, Breezy, and very much enjoyed the challenge of the class and the atmosphere of the day.Please browse through the web site as I am sure you will want to get your dog registered and get out there with your canine companion to "strut your stuff" along with the rest of us who are enjoying the sport again.Sandi Ver Sprill and (left to right in photo above) Fly, Breezy, Stella, Jasmine, and Pippa
Gabriel and his teammate, Charlene...“We earned our AKC Utility title (UD) today (August 28, 2015). I need to thank Sandi Ver Sprill and CDSP Obedience. If it wasn't for this wonderful venue, I would never have attempted this. I owe you big time, Sandi, but for now, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!”Charlene has been a primary supporter of the CDSP venue as an exhibitor and judge from the New England area. She always has a smile and encouraging words for every exhibitor when judging a team. She supports and congratulates fellow exhibitors when attending as a participant.Congratulations to Charlene and her partner, Gabriel, on their excellent success in the AKC ring after having such tremendous success in the CDSP obedience ring.
