AKC Rally Obedience Class --- Novice

East Field

$60.00

Come learn this fun, yet challenging activity for you and your dog. It is for dogs of all ages and will improve their knowledge of the Basic Commands such as sit, stay, down, and heel. What is Rally? Rally is a successful stepping stone from the AKC Canine Good Citizen® program to the world of obedience or agility. This is a great way to enhance your skills by working together as a team. Rally offers both the dogs and handlers an experience that is fun and energizing. A rally course includes 10 to 20 stations, depending on the level. Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience. Unlimited communication from the handler to the dog is to be encouraged and not penalized. Unless otherwise specified in these Regulations, handlers are permitted to talk, praise, encourage, clap their hands, pat their legs, or use any verbal means of encouragement. Multiple commands and/or signals using one or both arms and hands are allowed; the handler's arms need not be maintained in any particular position at any time. The handler may not touch the dog or make physical corrections. At any time during the performance, loud or harsh commands or intimidating signals will be penalized. This session will be learning the Novice Level signs. What to bring: Lots of small, soft treats 6 ft leash (no chain or zip leashes) Flat collar or martingale collar Water for you and your dog This is a 6 week session of 1 hour classes for $60 plus $20 membership fees.
