So we were having a discussion the other day at training and the subject came up about what per cent should we expect in the various OB and/or Rally classes.

For example, I read/saw somewhere in a statistical study that less than 50% was seen in Utility B and even less than that in A.

Does that seem right? I would have guessed, based on nothing except a "Feeling", that it should be much higher. Esp. in the B (experienced) classes.

Any one ever see any stats for Rally classes and the other OB classes? How about the difference in the A and B classes?

I would be really disappointed in my dog if he didn't have a higher pass rate (Reliability?) than that. Can you picture a working dog (Seeing eye, herding, K9, drug, etc. with a less than 50% success/obedience rate?

interesting statistic from AKC. if true, wonder what the reason(s) might be?
