For dogs over 6 months
of age who have successfully completed Beginning Home Obedience
and/or Advanced Home Obedience. Rally is the fun new sport that
combines agility and obedience. Dogs and handlers navigate a course
of basic obedience exercises.
For more information on Rally, including the exercises, visit this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rally_obedience. (Note: Rally is for mixed breed, as
well as purebred dogs.) Bring your dog & current training equipment
the first week.
Please Note: If you have done your dog training at another
facility and wonder whether or not your dog is ready for Advanced
Home Obedience or Rally Obedience, here's a list guidelines that
will help you make that determination. If you still do any of the

we would recommend Beginning Home Obedience class for you and your
dog. (Of course, please contact us if you have a special situation
that you'd like to discuss.)

dogs. It might work temporarily, but it doesn't teach the dog what

Your dog pulls on the leash. We teach dogs how to walk beside you
without pulling and to sit when you stop walking - all on the first
Your dog won't come when called. We will show you how to train a
reliable recall - and only say "come" one time!
Your dog won't stay for one to three minutes around distractions.
Sit-stay, down-stay and stand-stay - around distractions!!! - are
taught in our Beginning Home Obedience classes.
You're still having behavior problems. We will help you find the
best solution for barking, chewing, digging, jumping up, and other
