Intermediate Obedience - Rally   8 Weeks

This class is an 8 week session that builds on the skills learned in beginner obedience class.  Rally Obedience is a relatively new event.  Dogs and handlers learn to negotiate a course that challenges their ability to work as a team.  Exercises include heeling, sits, downs, stays and work around distractions.  A bit less formal than competition obedience, Rally is a great way to continue to develop a novice dog's obedience skills.

Requirements - Current Shot record and completion the of Alchemy Beginner Class or approval of instructor.  Contact us to set up a private evaluation.
