AKC Rally® is a companion sport to AKC Obedience. It requires teamwork between dog and handler along with performance skills similar to obedience. Rally provides an excellent introduction to AKC events for new dogs and handlers, and can provide a challenging opportunity for competitors in other events to strengthen their skills. All dogs are eligible to compete in rally. Handlers can talk to dogs, repeat commands and use whistles/claps and other sounds to encourage dogs while competing in Rally in front of a judge.
Rally I and Rally II classes run concurrently. Rally II will run course set up, while Rally I students are learning signs. Then Rally II students work on new signs while Rally I students run course. All dogs, including both purebred and mixed breed dogs, are welcome to participate in our rally classes!

This 6-week class has an established curriculum. This class is for teams who have some basic obedience skills. We will focus on strengthening “teamwork” and obedience using Novice Rally signs and courses. All 42 AKC Novice signs will be taught and reviewed. Students will receive ring experience running courses. Many teams take this class more than one time to learn the rally signs and then to improve their skills with the signs for Rally competition.
Pre-Requisites: CGC, Beginning Family Dog or permission of the instructor
