Just for clarity, if you want to do ALL the optional titles, it would be in this order:

Beginner novice
Pre-novice
Novice
Graduate novice
Pre-open
Open
Graduate Open
Pre-utilty
Utility
Versatility


Correct?

Looks like it... I'm still re-reading and clarifying why we need these new classes, tbh.

Ha, too true. Five titles before you ever get to open? I can understand the Beginner Novice and/or Pre-Novice for people new to obedience. I'm going to start Beginner Novice this year with Logan just to get a feel for formal obedience. But once you get a CD, you ought to have an idea of what you're doing.

Jumping from the cdx to ud it's a leap so I can see some building blocks and I think the bn is a good idea but more steps?

from what I understand these new classes aren't even required, you don't HAVE to enter Graduate novice before you enter Open for example.

That's correct, you can still title through Novice-Open-Utility just like before and ignore everything else.

Correct. Optional titling classes can be done in any order, and you can enter more than one level at the same show.

ETA- Nevermind- I saw BN in the judging time schedule.

They aren't required, and you don't have to do them in order. There are people where we train who have UDs on their dogs and have "gone back" and put a BN on them. I think, on the handler & dog part, it's more for ring experience, or in the case of an older dog who likes to compete, a way to keep them active. On the AKC's part- it's money.
