Requirements for Pre Novice

The Pre-Novice class consists of six exercises, each with a specific point value. Your dog should respond to the first command, and you'll be penalized for additional commands. All the exercises are performed on leash. Before each exercise, the judge asks, "Are you ready?" You say that you are, and the judge then gives the command, such as "Forward" for the Heel On Leash (see the section "Exercise 1's Heel On Leash: 'Let's Dance, Buddy,'" later in the chapter) and Figure 8 exercises (see the section, "Exercise 1's Figure 8: 'Buddy, Do the Twist,'" later in the chapter), or "Stand your dog and leave when ready" for the Stand for Examination (see Chapter 14). These exercises are always done in the order in which they're listed in Table 13-1.
