    DefaultStarted my first Rally-O classes

    Rocky and I started our first Rally-O class tonight. Things went well enough. It's a small group which is great (we get enough time to run thru drills - but no pushing the dogs either).

    My boy seems to have forgotten a few things he used to know (sit/go around) but that's mostly due to my lack of practice (I've worked on other skills like flyball/tricks)

    It's more fun than I thought it would be

    I am teaching Remington Rally too!

    Our class doesn't start until December 8 (I'm teaching a Rally Novice Class) but I've signed up for Rally Novice B on Dec 1, so I need to start teaching him the ropes.

    It IS fun.

    Be sure to do your homework!!!!

    Hee hee, that's pretty much my homework for this week too!! I haven't worked on it at all, and then we went to try it and Baloo would shuffle his little butt so he was facing me where ever I went. : :P Basically saying, "where do you think you're going with those cookies, lady...??"

    So we learned some techniques that helped, now we just have to practice practice practice!!

    Fun!!! I love rally- so much fun, almost like a "schooling class" for those who are into horses. I don't get nearly as nervous for those classes, knowing that I can constantly talk to my dog.

    Good luck! Looking forward to progress reports!

    That's great - I know you'll have fun. I've never been to rally classes - a gal started one up at our club, but it didn't start till 8:30, which would have put me home after 11 pm in the middle of the week - couldn't do it.

    thanks everyone (it's nice to be in a sport other members know about - the flyball/sport section is veryyyy quiet!)

    We learned a few tricks for teh sit/stay. the teacher encourages lots of treating at first. I actually don't feed as much as most (honestly, Rocky looses all concentration when I feed him so I balance that fact with the need to encourage him/reward good behavior).

    I talk almost none stop though If we continue in this we'll be a funny duo to see!

    I keep asking if it's a fault for his tail to knock something (his tail doesn't stop and hits the cones/posts) poor guy!

    YAY!!! Rally is sooo much fun!! I know Henery enjoys rally more than formal obedience, at least at the Novice level!!

    You're gonna have a blast!!

    Good girl for talking to your dog non-stop.

    You wouldn't believe how I have to get on my students about NOT talking to their dogs. I like to hear a constant banter going.
