From the inventor of the first American Agility program, Charles (Bud) Kramer, comes a new twist on an old sport - Rally Obedience! This new sport was created to promote a positive relationship between the dog and his owner. Animation and enthusiasm thru-out the performance is encouraged. And....you are allowed to talk to and praise your dog in the ring!
Rally Obedience differs from the traditional style obedience in that each team is judged on their execution of a single, continuous performance of exercises, uninterrupted by orders from the judge. It is similar to agility in that respect. It goes beyond basic heeling by interspersing over 40 obedience movements with the sits, turns and paces of traditional heeling.
Currently, there are 4 different organizations offering Rally - American Kennel Club (AKC), Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), World Wide Kennel Club (WWKC) and Canadian Association of Rally Obedience (CARO). Each one is a little different but the concept is the same - FUN!

This is a 5 week Introduction to Rally O! class where you will learn the basic rules and philosophy of Rally. Because each flavor is different, we will cover the major differences between them. By the end of the 5 weeks, you will know how to perform all the Novice signs in all flavors, as well as how to read and walk a Novice level course. On the last week of class, there will be a course for everyone to run-thru.
This is not a competition level class where you will learn how execute the movements with the precision needed to get a perfect score. You will receive instruction on how to teach the basics of the exercises, but this is not the focus. We have competition lessons if you are interested in learning the fine details and footwork of competition obedience.
