AKC Novice Obedience Task Card Pack
Novice is the launching pad for the new obedience team. Heeling is done both on and off leash, stays are performed with a group of dogs, and the dog must come when called. A dog and handler can earn their Companion Dog (CD) title at this level. Here all of the basic tasks are supplied like finishes, figure eight heeling, and stand for exam. There are 9 task cards (4 cards of each task) and 4 Play! cards that make up the AKC Novice Obedience task pack. There are 41 cards in total:
- 1 Header Card
- Finish Right Cards
- Finish Left Cards
- Recall Exercise Cards
- Figure 8 On Leash Cards
- Fronts Cards
- Heeling On Leash Cards
- Stand for Exam Cards
- Long Down Stay Cards
- Long Sit Stay Cards
- Play!! Cards

How to use the Train 'Em Tasks system:
The task cards are to be used with the Train 'Em Tasks linen grab bags. To make your daily training game plan, pull a couple of task cards from your grab bag and train those exercises. For obedience I might pull 3 - 5 cards and work each exercise for 5 - 10 minutes depending on the task. For agility, I will pull two task cards and pick drills, sequences, or a course that will work those tasks. After you have completed your tasks, you can put them back into your bag or set them side until your bag is empty. That way, you can make sure you and your dog work all of your tasks (I personally have a separate bag for spent tasks.)
