Rally O Class
This class is a drop-in class designed for people who want a fun and interactive way to continue to work with their dogs. Rally is an obstacle course of sorts — using stations to practice obedience skills. The dog/handler team proceeds at their own pace, completing each skill. Each week offers a new course for the dog/handler team to negotiate. Stations may focus on such skills as: Down — handler walks around the dog; Weaving around a series of cones together. Rally is a fun way to keep the basic obedience skills learned in puppy and foundation classes sharp while reinforcing the bond between dog and handler.
Prerequisite: Household Manners Class and the approval of the class instructor.
Requisites for the class: 6’ leash (NO Retractable leashes), a regular collar, and soft treats (preferably, a “high value” treat (i.e., a treat the dog really loves)).
