Rally is a sport in which the dog and handler complete a course that has been designed by the rally judge. The judge tells the handler to begin, and the dog and handler proceed at their own pace through a course of designated stations (10 - 20, depending on the level). Each of these stations has a sign providing instructions regarding the next skill that is to be performed. Scoring is not as rigorous as traditional obedience.



TRICK DOG CLASS

New Class starts Thursday, January 25th at 6:30 pm
 
For more information and to register, Email Melody Newberry at:


Melody will be teaching and testing tricks at the NOVICE and Intermediate Levels

AKC new titles for: Trick Dog and Virtual Home Manners. 
  
The Novice Trick Dog test requires the dog to perform 10 tricks but a CGC title counts as five (at Novice level). Dogs with a CGC can quickly move on and work at the Intermediate title. 

This is an introductory class so no prior experience is necessary, but it would be beneficial if the dogs already know basics like sit, down and work on a flat collar and leash.


NOTE: Melody is available to do "virtual testing" for your Trick Dog title and/or Virtual Home Manners

Contact her directly by Emailing: aknewberrys@gmail.com

Information about Trick Dog tricks can be found at http://www.akc.org/about-trick-dog/
