Classes >> Rally Obedience

Rally is one of the sports offered by the AKC. This competitive event combines elements from basic obedience training, competition obedience, free style dance and agility!  Rally can also provide a transitional link to competitive obedience and agility or just be another fun team activity to learn with your dog! 

A Rally course is designed with 10 to 20 different “stations” with written instructions to be performed by the team. The course is numbered and the handler and dog follow the course performing each exercise.  The dog and handler move thru the course with the dog under control and walking politely on the handler’s left side. 

Praise, talking, clapping, patting your legs and all verbal means of encouragement are allowed in the ring. Repeating an exercise if necessary is also allowed. During competition events handlers may not use treats or touch their dogs.  There are four titles available in Rally: Rally Novice (RN), Rally Advanced (RA), Rally Excellent (RE) and Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE). 

Rally is a fun and great way to continue using your Family Dog skills and to work as a team with your dog! 

AKC Rally Novice

Rally is a fun sport where dogs and handlers navigate a course of stations, designed by a judge. Each station has a sign with instructions for actions to be performed by the team. The team works at its own pace to complete the course. In Rally, handlers are encouraged to talk to and praise their dogs as they navigate the course. 

In this class, you and your dog will learn the skills needed to enter AKC Rally Novice. Each week, new signs will be introduced, and you will have a chance to practice the skills needed to successfully complete a course. AKC Rally rules will be explained, and you will get the chance to practice on courses. Working through distractions will be part of the class.

To participate, dogs should have basic everyday obedience skills (sit, down, stay, walk on leash) and should have completed Family Dog II or its equivalent. Handlers need not have competed in Rally before. 

What to bring: a hungry dog, lots of yummy treats, a clicker and a sense of humor!

Prerequisite: Family Dog II or comparable training.  Your dog should be able to walk loosely near your side on leash and have reliable sits and downs.

 

What to Bring: Bring lots of delicious treats, your clicker, your encouragement and enthusiasm!

Fee: 6 weeks, $140 (includes tax), $126 for Tails Members.
