Level 1, this is a fun 5 lesson course providing the basics and foundations of the fun sport of Rally O’. This is dogs over 5 months. You will need to have some basic foundations in obedience before the course. What is Rally ‘O?……………..Obedience .. but fun!

Rally Obedience (also known as Rally-O) is a relatively new fun dog-sport based on traditional dog Obedience but carried out in a more informal and relaxed style,
 with the handler having familiarised themselves with a course of sequential signs. Unlike in traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course, so you may use as much verbal praise and petting as you wish. It can be a great way to increase your bond with your dog, and to help you and your dog develop skills that can be applied in everyday life, or in other dog-sports.

You will learn 33 Novice signs throughout this course and be supplied with laminated ones so you can practice at home or a park. At the end of each lesson you will participate in a little course covering the signs that you have learnt that lesson.

Prerequisites? A General grasp on obedience: sitting and walking manners would be helpful. A basic obedience course would be a good idea beforehand BUT not a necessity.

Competition? If wanting to compete options will be available to continue to that standard, definitely not a requirement.

Hoopers Course Includes:

What is Hoopers? Hoopers is a fun, low impact, free flowing sport. If you or your dog find that high impact activities are not for you then try Hoopers. The equipment is low impact, with smooth lines allowing easy course runs. Equipment is low cost and easy to set up. The main obstacles in this sport are the ground level hoops in-which the dogs run under barrels, which they go around and large straight tunnels to run through.

Who can do it? Dogs of all ages and sizes can do Hoopers, as it is easy on the handlers too! Tunnels are straight, hoops are tall and roomy and doesn’t have difficult weaves or contact equipment like agility does. In addition, you and your dog don’t have to be lightening fast to enjoy this sport. Your dog will learn to run underneath sequenced hoops, around barrels, through tunnels. This course will begin with foundations for each piece of equipment at Starters level, it is straightforward and encourages the dog to follow the line of the course and keep moving forward.
