Our intro to Rally Obedience workshop is a great opportunity to introduce your dog to this exciting sport! You will see a demonstration of a full rally course, be introduced rally signs, work on obedience skills with your canine partner, learn about the rules of rally, and have a chance to put it all together in a mini course. This workshop is open to all dogs that have basic obedience such as sit, down, and heel - they do not need to be perfect though! (Rally is an excellent way to teach and build upon those obedience skills.) We will discuss both AKC and World Cynosport (formerly APDT) Rally.

Limited to 8 teams.
Sunday February 28th from 5 - 7pm 

Workshop fee: $25

What is Rally?
Rally is a sport where humane/canine teams work to perform obedience skills along a predetermined course marked with signs. Unlike traditional obedience, teams are encouraged to talk, praise and encourage their canine partner throughout the course. Rally is a fun sport for dogs of all ages and breeds.

If you enjoy the workshop and want to learn more, then join our 4 week Beginner Rally class! 

Dogs ages 5 months and up​
4 weeks – $75.00 
Starts SATURDAY, March 19th  @ 6:00 - 7:00pm (No class 4/9)
