Level 4: Rally Obedience

Dog and handler teams will learn to navigate a course with numbered signs indicating different obedience exercises to perform, such as Sit-Down-Sit, Straight Figure 8, Send Over Jump, and Recall Over Jump.

Teams will be taught the skills necessary to navigate the course at a brisk, continuous pace without direction from the judge. Class time will be divided into segments so that all teams will have the opportunity to work on the mechanics of the exercises and to run courses.

Competition venues for both purebred and mixed breed dogs will be covered.

To participate in this class, dogs must be able to demonstrate an understanding of sit, down, and stay commands, and be able to walk on a leash in a controlled manner.
