Specialty Classes

 

RALLY LEVEL

Beginning and Continuous 

(Prerequisites: completed BBO)

This class will refine some of the skills you have learned in Basic Behavior and Obedience. We will also introduce some new skills that will not only be used in Competition Obedience but will make your dog a better companion. The main objective of competition obedience is to showcase dogs that have been trained to behave in the home, in public places, and in the presence of other dogs, in a manner that will reflect positively on the dog and handler. Even if you don’t have aspirations of gaining titles (which are available in several different venues to both purebred dogs and mixes) this class is a great way to continue to build your relationship with your canine team mate. Emphasis will be placed on building the team using positive reinforcement.
