Rally is all about teamwork. You and your dog navigate a course together, side-by-side, at your own brisk pace. You move him through a course with signs where he performs different exercises. The courses are designed by the Rally judge (10-20 signs per course, depending on the class level) that include various turns and commands such as sit, down, stay, etc.
Unlimited communication from the handler to the dog is to be encouraged and not penalized. While touching isn’t allowed, you can use verbal commands, clap your hands, pat your legs and use hand signals to praise and encourage your dog.

Get ready to take The AKC CGC test with this 6 week class.
If this is your first class that you will be taking with your dog then I highly recommend you start with the AKC STAR Puppy class if your dog is under 10 months or The Basic Training Class if your dog is over 10 months.
The class teaches the 10 skills needed to pass the CGC test.. It is open to all dogs – purebred and mixed breeds. Having a CGC may be an advantage when renting a residence or obtaining homeowner insurance. It may be required prior to registering as a therapy dog. The class is taught by an AKC CGC evaluator. 6 weeks, $120.
Canine Good Citizen test is a nationally recognized program that instills a sense of responsibility and good manners in dogs and owners alike. The heart of the CGC program is the 10-step CGC test. CGC The test consists of the following practical exercises:
1. Accepting a friendly stranger
2. Sitting politely for petting
3. Appearance and grooming
4. Walking on a loose leash
5. Walking through a crowd
6. Sit and down on command and staying in place
7. Coming when called
8. Reaction to another dog
9. Reacting (or not reacting) to a distraction
10. Supervised separation.

Come have a dog playdate with all your friends at the club. Your dog must be either a current student of our AKC STAR Puppy class or have completed and passed the program.
A release of liability is required to be signed at the facility.

Keep your dog socialized. Unfortunately, after the intensive period of early socialization (Puppy Class) period many owners slack off. They see that their hard work has paid off and that their puppy is friendly and sociable in every situation they find themselves in. What they don‘t realize is that dogs naturally become more shy and standoffish as they get older. Adolescent and adult dogs develop fears and phobias to stimuli that they aren‘t continually exposed to. Keeping your dog well-socialized to other dogs is not so easy, and often this area of their socialization deteriorates the most rapidly.


Socialization & Enrichment is:
* An ongoing process, not a single object or event
* Only enriching if the animal chooses to interact with it or is affected positively by it
*Improving the quality of life for the dogs
*Helping the dog present themselves better when exposed to new situations
*Incorporates a combination of sensory, physical, environmental, cognitive, and social activities.
*Variety is the key to successful enrichment & socialization in order to keep things interesting. Modest but pleasant changes in the dog‘s environment help prevent dogs from becoming at-risk behaviorally.

Facility will be set up with a combination of sensory, physical, environmental, cognitive and social
activities.
