Introduction to CKC Rally Obedience

6 weeks, running Thursdays starting November 4, 2021 at 8:00 pm.

Come learn what CKC Rally Obedience is all about!  Learn the signs, practice what you know, and have fun with Rally-O Games!
 
The chief objective of CKC Rally is to provide a fast-moving and motivational activity that demonstrates the competency of handler and dog in performing basic obedience exercises without requiring the exact precision for success.  Rally can also provide the opportunity to refine training skills for competitors in other events.

Dogs and handlers are introduced to the exercises and how to use those exercises to execute the signs for the sport of Rally-O. Rules of the game are taught.

This class is an introduction to all that we do with our own dogs. The class is divided into working stations with foundation obedience being one of the stations every week. Other stations include how to play, learning to jump, rear end awareness, tunnels, barrels, targeting and some introductory skills used for flyball and disc. Most dogs and handlers benefit from having Foundation Level 1 first, but some can go into this class with prior training elsewhere or with an experienced handler.

  • Mondays starting November 8, 2021 at 8:00pm

Open to all ages, all breeds. Building a strong foundation with your dog is like building a house. Without a strong foundation, the house would soon crumble, thus foundation training is important for the family pet, as well as the dog that will go into other dog sports such as flyball, agility, Rally-O and conformation. Basics are sit, down, stay, come when called and learning the heel position. This class is a pre-requisite for every other class that KAOS offers. This is the class that will start to create a bond between dog and handler that is more than just a collar and leash.

PREREQUISITES: none
