What is French Ring?

French Ring is a protection dog sport most similar to Campagne, Mondio Ring and Belgian Ring, but also sharing common elements with Schutzhund and KNPV. There are 4 titles that can be earned: Brevet, Ring I, Ring II and Ring III, each level introduces progressively more difficult situations and makes greater demands on the dog. French Ring Sport includes: agility, obedience and protection exercise.







When competing in Ring, the dog has no collar or leash on at any time except during the heel on leash. No food rewards or physical corrections are allowed at any time while competing. Also, excessive praise/petting will result in a loss of general outlook points. Points for an exercise will be lost for multiple commands, incorrect commands, or failure of the dog or handler to perform the exercise correctly. Control is emphasized from the moment the dog/handler team walks onto the field, until they leave at the end.
