To All Rally Enthusiasts,
Are you interested in cleaning up your Rally performance?
Do you have questions about sign requirements?
Do you know the “teaching point” of that sign that drives you crazy?
Do you need pre-ring practice?
Do you know where and when to pause? stop? halt?
How many sits are in that sign?
Let us get together at Nationals to practice and play some Rally!
The PDCA Trial Chairperson, Jodi Josse, has graciously agreed to set aside some time (approximately three hours) and space for us to work. We are currently talking about Monday of Nationals week; further details to be worked out.
Participants will be limited to 10, depending on needs and levels. I will form a waiting list, as I am sure conflicts will arise as we get closer.
Sign up will be on a first come, first serve basis. Respond to me via PM, or via Facebook. I will respond as quickly as I am able. Do not email me.
This workshop will be based on participant needs.
Topics to be covered, as needed are:
*Review of signs
*Difference between a turn and a pivot
*Difference between a pause and a stop
*How to read an AKC sign
*Teaching point of sign requirements
*Training and Handling techniques
*Rules and Regulations review
*Handouts: Rally Resources, Rules and Regulations,
*The Cloverleaf (#314) made easy, The Naturals Laws of a Rally Dog in Motion Handouts will be emailed to participants ahead of time.
