The successful completion of Manners Obedience and / or having obtained a Canine Good Citizenship, or with permission of the instructor. Dogs MUST know basic obedience skills and be able to work in a class setting.
This course teaches the style of World Cynosport Rally (WCR ), a rapidly growing sport which promotes positive relationships between dogs and handlers, based on trust and mutual respect. The sport of WCR encompasses obedience skills and exercises which are easily transferrable to other rally venues, as well as to other canine performance sports. Intro to Rally is for either students who have never done rally, or those who are starting a new dog, as most of the class time will be on learning the different signs in Level 1.
Students will continue working on the basic obedience skills needed to succeed in Rally. Students will be introduced to the different signs in Level 1 Rally which are done on leash. Once students have learned the signs, they will begin to complete small sequences and work on a variety of skills to maximize their scores in competition.
Students who successfully complete Intro to Rally will then be able to transition into Beginner Rally.
