Rally Class

 

This 4-week class will give you a great introduction to the sport of Rally. You will also learn what changes AKC has implemented recently to this sport. Rally is a fun, challenging sport that showcases the teamwork between dogs and their people and is a more relaxed competition than traditional obedience.  Learn to be comfortable and practiced in the ring performing prescribed exercises. Rally is like a board game where the team walks to each station in a heel position and completes the exercise requested. Handlers are allowed to talk and/or use hand signals to show their dog what is expected at each station. Dogs seem to enjoy this game because they can be constantly cheered on and praised for their efforts. All the exercises learned in Rally are useful to make you and your dog better partners in everyday living. Some people just like to work with their dogs in learning these exercises towards a stronger bond and some want to go on to compete for Rally titles. Rally is a sport that is open to anyone who wants to achieve a higher level of training with their dog but have a lot of fun while doing it.
