Intro to Rally and Beginner Novice Obedience

Friday, August 6, 2021 and August 13, 2021 (6p.m.-8p.m.).  This is a 2-part workshop.  Fee for this 2-part workshop is $50.

Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a course that has been designed by the rally judge. The judge tells the handler to begin, and the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of designated stations (10 – 20, depending on the level). In this workshop we will introduce you and your dog to the skills for rally signs used in AKC, UKC and C-WAGS.  We will practice courses as well.

Beginner Novice is a great next step after your dog has completed the Canine Good Citizen.  Exercises are conducted with dog on leash with the exception of the recall. The Heel on Leash pattern is established with Rally signs, and handlers are allowed to give one verbal encouragement.  We will practice the skills needed for both AKC and UKC Beginner Novice courses.
