Rally Sport

Class Description

This six (6) week class covers all of the Rally novice exercises. Rally obedience challenges you and your dog on flowing  courses of obedience style exercises that build great attention, good timing, and versatility. Whether you want to train for  competition-level or fun-level this class will give you and your dog a good foundation. It emphasizes heeling with attention, which is an enjoyable form of exercise for both of you. Rally is an obedience based sport and is not agility training.

Class Candidate

The American Kennel Club now welcomes mixed breed dogs in all performance competitions.
