Rally-Obedience Novice (RN)

A fun and easy sport for you and your dog

Something to smile about: You and your dog will succeed at Rally-O.

Rally-Obedience Novice (RN):

Rally-Obedience Novice builds off of skills learned in the Rally-Obedience Intro and Beginner Obedience Level 2 courses. This course helps finesse more complicated moves like the "sidestep right" and "Halt left turn forward", as well as help the dog and handler build a foundation for trial. The goal of this course is to get you running courses with your dog so you can be competition ready.

Rally Novice trials are conducted on leash. A 4 to 6 foot leash is required for this class. Bring your own leash or, if you wish, leather leashes will be available for purchase at the class. In this class, a crate is also useful.

What you will accomplish...
  • Build mastery of the Novice signs (CKC)
  • Develop handling skills and working towards trialing
  • Develop approaches for specific signs
  • Get training tips on time reduction and execution of moves
  • Motivate your dog for optimal performance

Prerequisite: Completion of Rally-Obedience Intro training with the Swansea Dog Obedience Club or equivalent. Dog and handler should be working on the novice signs and be familiar with running courses.
