“Rally-O” (Rally Obedience) is a FUN and purely positive form of perfecting your dog’s obedience! In Rally-O you will learn lots of neat obedience exercises to do with your dog, then how to navigate a course set out with signs that instruct the team what to do.
Rally-O is great for any and every dog and owner! Excitable dogs learn how to apply that energy to working, shy dogs gain confidence, distracted dogs learn how to focus on their owner, and every owner learns better handling skills and how to train for perfected obedience in a positive manner!
Rally-O is also a competitive dog sport open to all dogs to compete in, regardless of age, breed or any physical limitations! Competing is totally optional, but many of our students compete and are VERY successful at trials, earning titles for their dog, and nice ribbons to enjoy!
Why try Rally-O?
- Perfect your dog’s obedience in a fun and upbeat training style.
- Classes are 100% positive (physical correction-free training).
- Excellent class for every dog, from shy to enthusiastic, all dogs will benefit.
- Build a better relationship with your dog and increase your bond.
- Advance your dog’s obedience training, and your handling and training skills.
What is the difference between basic obedience and Rally-Obedience classes?
If your dog is reactive (i.e. lunges, barks etc towards other dogs and/or people), and requires a personal bubble of space from other dogs or people, we will accommodate your dog as long as you have previously or are currently working with a positive reinforcement trainer on your dog’s reactivity, so that you are skilled at managing your dog in a group setting.
Need a trainer for this? Let us know! We are happy to help!
Please note: Agility Foundations class is very high energy! If other dogs running/barking/jumping would likely cause your dog to react or be uncomfortable, we recommend starting in a calmer class like Rally-Obedience or Good Manners before joining Agility Foundations.
If your dog barks excessively around other dogs (and cannot easily be stopped with a toy or food) we ask that you please contact us to schedule a private session before joining a group class, so that we can work on the barking before joining a more exciting group class. While we understand your dog may just be excited or nervous around the other dogs, if the dogs are constantly barking it is unfair to the students who cannot hear the instructor, and the instructor who has to try to talk over barking dogs.
