Rally Signs

Rally

Imagine a circuit course for dogs. Your dog is off leash, and you guide him from sign to sign, following the instructions on each. At your command, he leaps over a jump, then comes back to you. After about 90 seconds of obedience and 10-20 signs, you cross the finish line, and everybody cheers.

Our Rally program offers classes and practice opportunities at all levels. Our instructors have competed through multiple levels of Rally Advanced Excellent (RAE), the highest Rally title AKC awards. Two are AKC Rally judges.
