Rally is a sport where you and your dog navigate a course together as a team, side-by-side. The course consists of 10-20 different signs.

This is a beginner level course for any and all pups and their people. Basic obedience is helpful but not required, basic good manners in your pup is recommended. Anyone who has attended one of our courses in the past is welcomed as well.
