    We worked on healing around rally signs; staying in the middle while handler walks around course; and a little bit on come/recall. We will be reviewing each of these every week so you'll be able to easily catch up. Classes are Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. except for August 19, 2014, because of the KCA Dog Club Meeting, which you are invited to. Last Class will be on 8/26. A Novice Obedience Class will follow separately the next week with six sessions.
