Rally Obedience

On-Going | $15
For all ages & breeds.

Rally Obedience is taking the competition world by storm and with good reason, it's seriously fun! Devised by Charles L. "Bud" Kramer, he took the typical obedience practice of "doodling" and created something that was not only fun, but actually brought life back into the dying world of obedience competition in 2000. Doodling is an interesting variety of warm-up and freestyle exercises to prepare your dog for the obedience ring, or simply to just have some fun and build a deeper bond.

Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge to call out the commands you are to perform, the competitors make their way around a timed course of designated stations with the dog in heel position.

The course consists of 10-20 fun signs that instruct the team what to do. The best part? You are allowed to talk to and encourage your dog throughout the course!

Competing is not required to join us - just the desire to have fun and do more with your dog!
