Dog Project Meeting
Dog Project is changing! With so many fun disciplines in dog project it is difficult to learn each one and be ready for Fair so this coming year we are going to try something brand new. We will teach each discipline separately (i.e. modules) and have a performance following that module. Our first module will be on Rally Obedience. Here is what Rally Obedience (Rally-O) is in a nutshell.
"Rally Obedience is the mixture of classical obedience training and agility training. When our dog practices Rally-O, he or she learns how to obey to commands (typical of classical obedience training) while having good fun (typical of agility training)."
We will do a 7 week module starting on
Saturday, October 6th and meet at 2:30 pm.
As long as the weather is good we will meet by the dog barn. If the weather turns nasty we will meet indoors in the Arts building. The module will conclude with a Rally "Trial" on Saturday, November 17th (this date is subject to change depending on weather, participation etc.)
