Monday Class Lineup


5:00 PM - AKC Rally

Drop-In Class

Spots Available! - Please RSVP via email


Think of an AKC Rally event as any team sport: You and your dog navigate a course, side-by-side, as you steer them through a course of different signs. Each of these signs provides instructions regarding the next skill that is to be performed. The dog and handler move continuously throughout the course with the dog under control at the handler’s left side. There is a clear sense of teamwork between the dog and handler both during and between the numbered signs. Although each performance is timed, having a good race time is not the goal; it’s all about working as a team while performing the skills, with the dog under control. (Courtesy of: AKC.org)


No experience required! Learn all you need at this super fun class!
