Refine and polish sign performance and develop course skills for competition in AKC, UKC, or ASCA Rally-O competition.
Rally Competition classes offer both the dogs and handlers a fun and energizing experience. The canine team moves at their own pace, very similar to rally-style auto racing. Rally was designed with the traditional pet owner in mind, but it can still be very challenging for those who enjoy higher levels of competition.
A rally course includes 10-20 stations, depending on the level. Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience. Communication between handler and dog is encouraged and perfect heel position is not required, but there should be a sense of teamwork between the dog and handler. The main objective of rally is to produce dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs.
Preregistration is not required for Rally Competition class and you can start at any time. Simply purchase an Advanced/Competition class card. This entitles you to 6 sessions of Rally Competition.
