    . Rally is a fun way to develop team work between you and your dog. This class is designed to introduce you to the Rally Novice signs and how to do the courses and a basic understanding of what is judged if you would to decide to pursue a Rally Title. If showing is not for you, it is still a lot of fun learning and doing spending time with your dog in a fun, safe setting. Everything in this class is performed on a 6 ft leash and all dogs will be under control. Rally was introduced as a class to introduce a transition from the Canine Good Citizen to both Obedience and Agility. This class is a must to prepare you for the advanced classes and courses to compete with your dog at the higher levels or just let you play at the higher levels.
