There are several core skills that are key to a smooth and enjoyable performance in the Obedience and Rally rings. When these skills are solid, we can have confidence in our dogs in pressured situations (such as competition!), and we can look forward to higher scores and even placements in any obedience or Rally venue. Top handlers practice these foundation skills religiously throughout their dogs' careers.
