Rally signRally Training Class

While Rally contains and utilizes many obedience commands, it is different from regular AKC obedience. Unlike traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to verbally encourage and manually signal their dogs during the course. Participants proceed around a course of designated stations with the dog in heel position, manuvering cones, turns and in more advanced level, jumps. A course consists of signs that instruct the dog/handler team what to do. Golden Triangle's Rally class will introduce you to the Novice to Excellent levels of competitive Rally, but if you don't want to compete, Rally is a great way to connect with your dog in a fun atmosphere.

Agility provides a great form of exercise for both dog and handler. AKC held its first agility trials in 1994. All breeds and all sizes of dogs may compete, or try agility just for fun.
