Tyler Did It!

He got the third leg for a C.D. today at Old Dominion Kennel Club. Now he's in for a little Rally-O. That makes both guys with C.D.s - so Tyler will have to play catch-up to Max's Rally degrees now! :twisted: :evil: :lol:

That is WAY COOL! I'm impressed. Do you know of a good website (besides AKC) that explains all of the Rally leg's? I get so confused!

Ok..here's the deal with rally-o

Postby Liz H » Tue Apr 25, 2006 9:32 am

This is going to be looooong. OK. Rally-O competitions were started by APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers). There are three levels in their competitions, and then multiple, very complicated championship points, etc.
APDT allows physically challenged owners and/or dogs, as well as mixed breeds. In the first level, dogs are on leash,.

A year ago in January, AKC finally got on the Rally bandwagon. They also have three levels of Rally - Novice, Advanced, and Excellent. As in APDT Rally, dogs are on leash for the first level and work off-lead for the second and third levels.

To find out more about APDT Rally-O, go to http://www.apdt.com/rallyo/index.htm

For AKC Rally Rules and regulations, go to the AKC Events page and click on "about Rally O".

Hope this helps...

Congratulations! Great job! We have just recently begun Rally-O ourselves and it seems like it is a lot more fun for the dogs. Keep us posted on Tyler's progress and also any tips that you may have.

Now I understand the difference between Rally and Rally-O. I think it is terrific. Not that it is easy, but at least someone like me can try it out. Unlike obedience - I just can't spend the entire day training my dog. I think it is a win-win sport for human and canine alike!

Rally O is getting really popular around here too. Annie and I just joined a newly formed local Rally club. Since we live in Canada, we follow the CARO rules (Canadian Association of Rally O). I hear the CKC is going to offer rally too. I used to do "regular" obedience but it is so "stiff" and formal, not like Rally where the owners and dogs seem to have more fun. I think it will be a good compliment to our agility training too.
As we all go along in our rally training, we can help each other through our frustrations.....oh wait, there shouldn't be too many...we have Britts, right? :roll: :lol:
Take care....Lisa H

Liz -
After your post I check with my trainer and she is actually starting a Rally class this week. Guess we're off to learn more stuff!!

I used to do "regular" obedience but it is so "stiff" and formal, not like Rally where the owners and dogs seem to have more fun.

I didn't think I was smart enough for regular obedience but I think I can actually have a good time with my daughter doing Rally! Finally a sport that a ordinary person can do AND build a better relationship with their dog at the same time!!
