Rally is an AKC sanctioned event that is performed as a team sport between your dog and you as the performing team. The goal is to navigate through a course of 10 – 20 different signs displaying commands. Beginning levels are done on-leash while advanced levels are performed off-leash. Rally is an event that showcases teamwork and skills.
An AKC Obedience Trial will take your dog and you to a beginning level of competition and eventually to advanced levels of competition. Having learned basic obedience commands, you will advance through skills such as walking on-off leash in a variety of patterns, retrieving objects, jumping over obstacles, and demonstrate your dog’s ability to stay in place for a prolonged period of time. Obedience competition and training is the best way to establish good communication between your dog and you.
LBDTC has held annual spring Obedience and Rally Trials for more than a decade at various locations in the region including: Middletown Grange in Wrightstown, PA and Up-Front Dog Training Center in Allentown, NJ.
