We teach Rally but it is a steep learning curve for class and trainers at the moment! The scoring system in my opinion is quite complicated and you really have to be in full thinking mode when following someone round a course! Think it is easier to take part rather than judge! But I am going on a workshop, probably same place, in August to learn to be a proper rally judge and things will hopefully become much clearer LOL!

at Moulton college? ;DJuly 17, 2009 at 2:59 pm #79872justpetdogsMember
I’ve dabbled a little with it in one of my more advanced classes…everyone seemed to enjoy it because it’s got some degree of structure for the more advanced handlers without being as stuffy and rigid as competitive obedience.

Yes at Moulton college, if you’re taking your dog we may be practising our judging skills on you in the afternoon, can I say sorry in advance?!!

yes the lady i train with and i are bringing our labs! :ok: ;DJuly 21, 2009 at 3:52 pm #79875
;D Oh well at least that’s a couple to practise on!! Did a course this week at our IWSA champ show weekend set by an American trainer (can’t remember her name) but I must have done it wrong as I didn’t get placed! It was good fun though and the dog loved it. Last night at club had them working on dogs tucking their hind ends in when turning as apparently this is looked for on the right and left turns. Practise by circling first and clicking when dog moves hind legs in then progress to going round four chairs again clicking for hind legs moving in. Your body posture is very important as that tells the dog the direction of turn and yes, that includes your feet! This is going to be such fun I can just tell! :suspious:September 25, 2009 at 11:08 pm #79876
UK Rally is now taking off and I think it will be very popular once people get to know about it. Several APDT trainers are now running classes and workshops so if you fancy doing something a bit different give it a go!March 16, 2010 at 11:21 am #79877leotiMember
