Introduction to Rally Obedience:
6 Weeks, $150.00
Instructor: Katie Brennan

Rally is one of the most popular sports for dogs and their owners. It consists of simple obedience exercises put into courses using numbered signs. Handlers are encouraged to talk to their dogs and praise them while performing the exercises listed on the signs. This fun and exciting sport showcases and celebrates teamwork between you and your dog. Rally is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in trying a dog sport.
The instructor will teach you how to train your dog to perform several Novice level sign exercises. Most of these exercises will be performed on leash for this semester. Once the exercises are trained, teams will learn to sequence the exercises into short courses. We will cover heeling, turns, changes of pace, position changes such as sit and down. Even if you never have plans to compete, this class will teach you to train your dog, strengthening the bond you have with your dog. This Class will be a ton of fun for both you and your dog.
