Rally Obedience is a great way to practice the skills that you’ve been learning in your companion dog or puppy class, and use them to play a fun and challenging game with your dog. This class will focus on level 1 and/or level 2 exercises depending on the skill level of the participants. Experience is not required, but dogs enrolling in these classes should have a foundation in basic obedience (sit, down, stay, wait & polite leash walking) and they do not need to be perfected for starting rally-O!! The focus of this class is on the basic obedience skills and handling techniques necessary for the sport of rally obedience, as well as on the fundamental rules and judging criteria for Novice/Level I exercises.
