What will you and your dog learn in this class?
Each lesson will have a series of stations. Your dog will learn the skill for each station, and then put it all together to run the course.
Each week the course will get a little bigger, with more stations. The first weeks will focus on basic skills, and the later weeks will delve into more advanced activities.
What kind of dog is this class for?
Rally Basics is perfect for both older and younger dogs, as all of the activities are designed not to put overt stress on the joints.
Are there any prerequisites for this class?
Because this class builds on existing class material, we require students to take our Family Dog Manners or Puppy Preschool class prior to enrollment in Rally Basics.
Rally classes fill up quickly! If you already plan on taking Family Dog Manners or Puppy Preschool and then Introduction to Rally immediately after, call (920) 648-2421 or email us to claim your spot before the class fills up!
How much does this class cost?
The price of Rally Basics is $150, which includes lessons, take-home handouts, and graduation materials. Additionally, our instructors are more than willing to stay after class and address any individual questions you may have.
