Rally is the fun version of obedience. The Novice and Intermediate classes are performed on leash. This is a great chance to test your PWD in the ring doing a performance event. In Novice, you can talk all you want, give additional hints to your dog to help the overall performance. Best of all, you can encourage and reward (with words, no treats) as you go so your fur friend knows it is doing exactly what you want. Also note that, Novice has only Novice signs. Intermediate has both Novice and Advanced signs. There are no jumps in either class. Intermediate is a nice transition from Novice to Advanced. This is a
wonderful opportunity to get into the field of obedience in a stress free venue! We will offer the following classes at the Specialty:
Novice A, B
Advanced A, B
Excellent A, B
For those of you new to Rally, please see the AKC Rally Resource pages to answer any questions you may have. Here is the link to that page.
For those who have done Rally before, please take a quick look to make sure you are aware of changes that have occurred since your last trial.
