DROP IN TRAINING: Join us for Rally Drop-in Training on the following Saturday mornings. Get ready for the Rally Trial at Happy Dogs next month or brush up on your Rally skills and have some fun with your dog.

Dates: 8/8, 8/15, 8/22, 8/29 and 9/5
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

AKC RALLY VIRTUAL PILOT PROGRAM: If you are interested in earning a Novice or Intermediate title through the AKC Rally Virtual Pilot Program, we will help you by setting up your courses and videoing your performance beginning at 1:00 p.m. following the drop-in training. Review your video on our large screen TV before you leave to make sure you didn’t make any mistakes! Reserve a time by contacting us at INFO@HappyDogsTC.com.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m., Rally courses will be set up in two rings. One ring will be set with a nested course containing signs for the Novice, Intermediate and Advanced classes.

The second ring will contain signs for experienced teams training to compete in the Excellent and Masters’ classes.

At 1:00 p.m., both rings will be available to video performances for submitting to the AKC Rally Virtual Pilot Program. We will assist participants in setting up their chosen courses and videoing their runs.

No formal instruction – work on your own or with friends. Dogs should have basic obedience skills and be competing or preparing to compete in Rally at any level.

$15 Fee for Drop-in Training (nonmembers)
$15 Fee for Video Session (nonmembers)
Package rates available.

Face Mask Policy: At Happy Dogs, we like to “Train Like We Trial” and for this reason, participants will be required to wear face masks while in the building for Drop-in Rally training. Face masks will be required at Rally trials for the foreseeable future – let’s get our dog’s used to seeing us wearing them.

Best Practices: To the extent possible, we will adhere to the suggested best practices published by the American Kennel Club as a guide for clubs hosting trials. Again, these are the practices we will be seeing at trials, let’s practice them.


Participants must fill out a drop-in form and acknowledge that their dogs are current on all vaccinations, including Bordetella.

Any changes to the scheduled drop-in training will be posted on the Happy Dogs training calendar.
