Does your dog already know basic obedience and you want to do more with him? Our rally obedience classes might be the solution! Rally is like an obedience obstacle course for dogs and it a lot of fun! The handler heels the dog between a series of stations and performs the behaviors on the sign at the station.
Our rally obedience classes focus on learning the individual behaviors that the signs use and then putting those behaviors together while learning how to perform each sign. After learning the signs, they are put together into a full rally course. AKC and ASCA Rally Obedience are the primary venues we address although you can easily do other venues using the information taught in this class.
Private lessons are also available!
