Fun | Focus | Play - Rally Obedience Classes
Our Rally Obedience classes are a great introduction to this exciting new dog sport that is rapidly gaining popularity.
Rally Obedience, or KC Rally as it is also known as is a relatively new dog sport that combines Traditional Obedience and Agility in an exciting new discipline.
Rally Obedience involves you and your dog working as a team to navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different exercises to perform. Just like agility, there is a time limit normally 4 or 5 minutes depending on the length and difficulty of the course to be navigated. The course is set by the judge or trainer.
Rally Obedience has 6 levels, everyone has to start at Level 1 regardless of previous experience in Agility or Obedience.
To move up the levels in competition, you need to achieve a qualifying score of 175 points or higher on 6 separate occasions and under 4 different judges for levels 1 to 4 whilst a qualifying score at levels 5 and 6 is 180 points out of 200. This is a very achievable goal for all participants as no classes need to be won in order to move up the levels.
The main difference between Rally obedience and traditional Obedience is that we actively encourage you to talk to your dog when navigating the course and your dog is worked within an arm's length, meaning they don't have to be glued to your leg!
Classes are limited to 4 dog and handler teams per session.
Please book to avoid disappointment, we only have a few spots left.
Rally Obedience classes are being held at the Milborne St Andrews Sports and Recreation Ground on Tuesday Afternoons at 3 pm. Please note: during the winter months training moves to the D'Urberville Centre in Wool.
We also offer Videoing Services to allow you to progress through the levels via the brand new official Video Rally Obedience Titles, introduced earlier this year.
