Intro to Rally Obedience

Rally Obedience (also known as “Rally-O”) is an exciting and positive dog sport that promotes connection and teamwork with your dog. 

Dogs and handlers work together to perform a series of fun obedience exercises laid out in a course. Rally-O is accessible to dogs and handlers of all physical abilities and skill levels, and you don’t need any special equipment to get started.

In this class, dogs and handlers will learn the foundational skills for Rally Obedience, including heelwork and all of the Novice level signs. As the class progresses, the teams will learn to navigate short courses to put their new skills to the test.

At Harmony, we teach CARO (Canadian Association of Rally Obedience) skills, but the skills are extremely transferable to other Rally-O organizations (CKC, UKC, or ASCA).  

This class is taught by an amazing teacher, Emma Bell. Emma loves introducing new dog and handler teams to the sport of Rally Obedience! Emma is a longtime competitor and judge of Rally-O. She has titled all three of her previous dogs in CARO Rally Obedience, and earned a CARO Master Championship with her dog, Malcolm. Emma trains and competes in Rally-O and agility, and dabbles in other dog sports. She is currently training her future dog sport partners, Fable and Fluke, to be Rally-O and agility superstars!
