Tracking. Obedience. Protection.
The sport focuses on 3 separate events during a trial. Each discipline is scored and then added to a whole score to determine the rate of the dog's title. Both tracking and obedience events can be titled separately, but when going for SCH I, II and III, and IPO I, II and III, all 3 disciplines are considered. If any of the disciplines are done insufficiently, a dog and handler can be disqualified for a title.
