Rally trials demonstrate the dog has been trained to behave in the home, public places, and around other dogs. No matter if you plan to compete in Rally, it's a great way to practice compliance.
In Rally, the dog and handler travel together through a course made up of 10-20 signs. Each sign displays a skill to perform, such as turns or behaviors like sit, down, or stay. The dog and handler work together and should demonstrate a sense of teamwork and enthusiasm throughout the course.
It takes time and practice to master each sign, as there are subtle differences.
During class, handlers and dogs can expect to work on a few signs each week with an opportunity to practice in class, receiving immediate feedback from the trainer. Furthermore, the handler and dog will practice verbal communication, establishing eye contact, and teamwork while working on a loose leash.
To receive a title, RN (Rally Novice), then a RA (Rally Advanced), you must enter three trials and receive a qualifying score of 70 or better in each to qualify.
It takes time to train and get both the dog and handler ready to show their dogs in the ring.
Four training sessions will start you on your way to competition success. More sessions are necessary to train and perfect the Rally Novice Advanced exercises.
Bring training treats to class for use as lures and rewards while training. It's also a good idea to have some high-reward treats to reward your dog for their best performance.
