All of the skills are taught as we play a variety of games with your dogs. We focus on teaching your dog a recall; sit/maintain; down/maintain; nice leash walking; proper greeting skills as well as impulse control.

Rally Obedience (also known as Rally or Rally-O) is a dog sport based on obedience. Unlike regular obedience, instead of waiting for the judge’s orders, the competitors proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position. The course consists of 10 to 20 signs that instruct the team what to do. Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course.
