Rally is a fun way to train your dog. Gone are the restrictions of "only say it once and then the do it because you said it" routines of formal obedience. This is a stepping bridge to Novice Obedience in a fun way. In this class you can talk, cluck, make smootchy noises, call your dog, repeat commands, pat your let, and train with encouragement.
Ever play Mother-May-I as a kid? I find Rally similar to that game. As you progress around the course you will encounter one sign after another that tells you what to do. In this class you will learn to read and recognize these signs and also learn how to get your dog to participate in these behaviors. Lots of good squeaky voices are welcome as are any other encouragement to our beloved partner.
Rally is a sport where you and your partner are along in the ring feeding off each other's excitement and love. Rally will also assist you in other dog sports as it covers the basics of obedience and develops trust in your relationship with your dog.
This will be a beginner class, learning beginner signs. However, if there are seasoned rally dogs out there that want to move into the next steps towards advanced rally, simply let me know and we can put dual signs on the posts for each participant to choose which behavior they want to ask their dog to do.
Come joins us for the fun Mondays from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. Please be at the first class at 7:15 so that paperwork can be completed. You will need to bring your pup's shot records with you. The fee is $60 for a six-week class.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
