DROP IN TRAINING: Join us for Rally Drop-in Training on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons. Get ready for your next Rally Trial, polish your Rally skills and have some fun with your friends and your dog.

WHEN: Wednesday and Sunday
TIME: 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
* Cancellations will be noted on the Happy Dogs training calendar.

HOW IT WORKS: Beginning at 11:00 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. Participants will take turns working through the rings. A Happy Dogs member will be available to answer questions, act as a judge or provide distractions.

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.

AKC RALLY VIRTUAL PILOT PROGRAM: If you are interested in earning a title through the AKC Rally Virtual Pilot Program, we will help you by setting up your courses and videoing your performance. Review your video on our large screen TV before you leave to make sure you didn’t make any mistakes! Contact us at INFO@HappyDogsTC.com to schedule a time.

$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.
