Wednesday Night Rally Class
July 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
5:30pm: Novice Rally Skills Class:
Back to basics with our Rally Skills class! Come enjoy this fun sport with your dogs, work on training skills with your dog in a fun environment in Rally Obedience. Benefits of participating in Rally with your dogs can include improvements in attention and focus around distractions, walking nicely on a leash, and obedience skills such as stay and come when called. We will work skills needed for the sport of Rally, and then sequences and courses with the signs and exercises. We will be focusing on the signs and skills as seen at the Novice level.
Novice Rally is fun sport to enjoy with your dog, it is all done on-leash, and there is no jumping or hard impact on the dogs’ bodies. Intermediate/Advanced Rally exercises are great for those who have already completed the Novice class and are ready for more challenges.
I train the Rally exercises with my dogs to improve their loose leash walking, obedience skills and training, and focus around distraction – and I really enjoy the rewarding format that is what Rally is all about. For more information on Rally: Rally Obedience
To enroll, please email Anne by Monday, July 10th.
