The AKC titling Event, Rally Obedience was created to allow handlers to actively reinforce good dog behavior in competition by using verbal and non-verbal praise. Smiles, encouraging words, laughter and a general happy feeling are encouraged in the ring for training and for competition. During competition, the handler moves through a pre-set course by reading numbered signs that give instructions. All breeds of dogs, including mixed-breeds, are eligible to compete in American Kennel Club (AKC) Rally Competition.
The objectives of this course are to teach your dog attention heeling, to sit, to lie down, to stand, to come when called and any other skills required for Rally Obedience at all levels of competition.
Your dog should have completed at least a basic obedience training course. Your dog should have a basic understanding of sit, down, stay, come and heel.
Your dog must be in good physical condition , up to date with all vaccinations, flea free and non aggressive towards people and other dogs.
You should make sure that your dog has a comfortable buckle or flat collar. You should also bring a 6 foot leash and comfortable walking/running shoes for yourself.
As this is a positive reinforcement training class, you are requested to bring treats to class as rewards for your dog. Small, bite-size pieces (ex: cut up hot dog) are appropriate. Please have them ready before class
