Nova Dogsport

Rally Obedience

Rally obedience is a fun dog sport that encourages a positive relationship between dog and handler.  Combining aspects of obedience and agility, it involves a numbered course which dogs navigate with their handler.  Each course is different and provides distinct challenges as teams work their way through Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Excellent levels.

The Levels:

Beginner Rally is a preparatory course for those interested in discovering the world of Rally Obedience. It will provide the handler with the skills needed to navigate a novice rally course as well as giving a brief introduction to some of the more advanced skills.   While perfecting our skills, the focus will be on having a fully engaged canine partner!

Skills covered include:   ring entries & snappy setups, heeling, positions (sit, down, stand, front, finish etc), hand touches, focal points and a complete explanation of novice and intermediate course signs

In the Novice/Intermediate and Advanced/Excellent classes we build on the foundations established in Beginners and start to work on the skills needed to complete Advanced, Excellent and Masters courses. 

Class Details:

Taught by “Change of Pace” trainer Jane McNee.

Classes are 1 hour in length and have 4 – 7 participants.

With the multiple level options, we can accommodate teams of any skill level.

We have ample space and can accommodate dogs which are space sensitive with other dogs or people
