Event Details

AKC Rally classes is a companion sport in AKC Obedience. It is teamwork between owner and dog as they move with an instructor thru a course at their own pace. The owner and dog have to have completed a Basic Obedience course. The sport was designed with the traditional dog owner in mind, but can be challenging for those who enjoy a higher level of competition. Communication from owner to their dog is encouraged and perfect heeling position is not required, but there should be a sense of teamwork and enthusiasm as they enjoy this bonding sport together. This 6 week class is being taught by experienced and knowledgeable instructors in AKC, UKC and WCRL Rally with many titles in each area.  Join them to enjoy this fun sport together.

Rodeo Dog is a fun sport for an owner and their dog. It was designed like barrel racing for horses but with you and your dog.  Any dog and handler can do this sport with no experience needed. You will form a close bond with your dog as you compete in a fun and safe environment. Everyone can enjoy this sport. There are no restrictions and accommodations will be made for handler or dog so that everyone can participate. This 6 week classes is taught by experienced instructors teaching  both Straight Line and Clover Leaf, and beyond.
