Rally Obedience Class

Class Description: Cynosport and AKC Rally ObedienceClass Description: Cynosport and AKC Rally Obedience 

Rally-O is a new take on traditional obedience. Unlike classic obedience, where a judge calls out instructions, in Rally Obedience you and your dog move through a course of 10–20 stations, each with a printed sign indicating an exercise you and your dog will carry out. Rally-O rules allow you to talk to and encourage your dog throughout the course. The focus is on teamwork between handler and dog - and on both having fun.

Rally-O exercises include a variety of basic and advanced obedience maneuvers based on heel/loose-leash walking, standing, turning, sitting and lying down, backing up, etc.

Even if you don’t intend to compete for titles, Rally-O is great for teaching your dog attention, body awareness, and everyday life skills.

How this class will benefit you at homeFamily Values: How this class will benefit you at home

  • Obedience builds confidence and strengthens your bond

  • You and your dog can work on AKC and Cynosport Rally-O titles

  • Rally exercises teach practical skills: for example, Stand for Exam builds calmness at the vet’s office, and an eager recall can save your dog’s life if he or she accidentally gets out of the house or yard

Treibball Class

Class Description: Ball Herding for Fun and ExcitementClass Description: Ball Herding for Fun and Excitement 

Treibball, a word that means push ball, is a sport in which your dog uses its nose and body to drive large exercise balls into a soccer goal. Think of it as “urban herding” - just without the sheep! This new dog sport has become incredibly popular, as it combines obedience and focus in a way that is not only fun but also mentally and physically challenging.

This class is an entertaining introduction to Treibball in a pressure-free and non-competitive environment. Any dog (your dog doesn’t have to be a herding breed) can do it, and it’s tons of fun. Many useful skills borrowed from classical herding, including distance control commands, are used in Treibball, making it a great way to round out your training experience.

All participants should bring their own inflated exercise ball. The exercise ball should be taller than your dog’s shoulders.

How will this class benefit you at home?Family Values: How this class will benefit you at home

  • You and your dog will learn to communicate at a distance, and build your relationship
  • Treibball is easy to learn but hard to play, so it really burns energy - and a tired dog is a good dog at home
  • It’s the perfect outlet for a ball-crazy or chase-stimulated dog

Dogs of all breeds, one year old and older at the start of class.

Canine Nose Work

Class Description: Class Description: Scent Detection for Fun and Titles 

Does your dog have a nose? Then he’ll love this sport! Nose Work is one of the biggest new hits in the dog world. It harnesses the power of the amazing canine nose using an easy-to-learn, positive training method that introduces dogs to scent work in a low-key, fun manner.

Scent work isn’t physically strenuous, but provides excellent mental stimulation for your dog. He will have fun, build confidence, and burn up tons of energy trying to puzzle things out.

Nose Work begins with Kindergarten searches, which encourage the dog to look for his favorite treat or toy. Once the dog understands that finding a target odor means lots of rewards, you and your dog will move to scent detection for small amounts of birch, anise, and clove.

  • Nose Work works with your dog’s instincts and talents, which makes it a great teamwork-building exercise.

  • Seeing your dog succeed is exciting and rewarding.
