Rally Drop-in Training

Be prepared for your next Rally trial!

What is Rally "Drop-in" Training?

Happy Dogs values Rally enthusiasts and understands that they need a place to train between classes so we set-aside time for them to train in our rings twice a week.

During Rally Drop-in training, we set-up two rings. One ring is set with a nested course including signs for the Novice, Intermediate and Advanced classes. The second ring includes signs for experienced teams training to compete in the Excellent and Masters’ classes.

Participants at Rally Drop-in training take turns working through the rings, helping each other, sharing information and preparing for their next trial.

There is no formal instruction during this Drop-in Training but there is always an experienced Happy Dogs member ready to answer your questions, act as a judge or provide distractions.
