What is Obedience and Rally?

AKC Obedience is a sport with rules, regulations, judges, conditioning, training, placements and prizes.  Dog and handler teams are judged on how closely they match the judge’s mental picture of a theoretically perfect performance as they execute a series of specified exercises.

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.

A Happy Dog means a Happy Home!

Advanced Manners Classes

Your Next Goal...

Advanced Manners class is designed to be the next level of training for our Puppy Manners class graduates and those returning to Basic Manners.  The class will challenge existing obedience skills, help you problem solve training habits and strive to develop better focus from the dogs.  New lessons will also be introduced.


Pre-Novice and Rally Classes

To the Next Level...!

This class combines the start of traditional Obedience competition skills and Rally Obedience skills. This is a fun class to introduce and enjoy advanced training with your dog.  Pre-Novice and Rally skills can help you have more control of your dog whether you compete in dog events or not. Competition rules and regulations will be taught as well. Learn more skills, as well as how much fun this can be.

Rally is a newer style of Obedience training. It is a lot of fun and a great way to train a dog. In Rally, you follow a course made up by signs that tell you what to do.. You can talk to the dog and encourage the dog while you run the course, and the entry levels are run on leash. It is a great way to work and give confidence to you and your dog.
