Rally obedience is a fun dog sport that encourages a positive relationship between dog and handler. Combining aspects of obedience and agility, it involves a numbered course which dogs navigate with their handler. Each course is different and provides distinct challenges as teams work their way through Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, Excellent & Master levels.


Beginner Rally is a preparatory course for those interested in discovering the world of Rally Obedience. It will provide the handler with the skills needed to navigate a novice rally course as well as giving a brief introduction to some of the more advanced skills. While perfecting our foundation skills, the focus will be on having a fully engaged canine partner! Skills covered include: ring entries & snappy setups, heeling, positions (sit, down, stand, front, finish, etc), hand touches, focal points and a complete explanation of novice and intermediate course signs.

In the Novice/IntermediateAdvanced/Excellent and Master level classes, we build on the foundations established in Beginner Rally and start to work on the new skills and signs needed to complete courses in higher levels.

Rally classes are ongoing throughout the year and are held at:

Nova Dogsport
Friday afternoons (Novice/Intermediate 4:10 pm)

Join a fun class environment where we learn the foundation skills necessary to succeed at all levels while keeping an enthusiastic and motivated partner.
