Beginners Rally Obedience

Level 1, this is a fun 6 lesson course providing the basics and foundations of the fun sport of Rally O’. This is for dogs over 5 months. You will need to have some basic foundations in obedience before the course.

What is Rally-O? Obedience… but fun!

Rally Obedience (also known as Rally-O) is a relatively new fun dog-sport based on traditional dog obedience but carried out in a more informal and relaxed style,
 with the handler having familiarised themselves with a course of sequential signs. Unlike in traditional obedience, handlers are allowed to encourage their dogs during the course, so you may use as much verbal praise and petting as you wish. It can be a great way to increase your bond with your dog, and to help you and your dog develop skills that can be applied in everyday life, or in other dog-sports.

You will learn 33 novice signs throughout this course and be supplied with laminated ones so you can practice at home or in a park. At the end of each lesson you will participate in a little course covering the signs that you have learnt that lesson.

Cost $310 (includes 33 laminated signs)


A general grasp on obedience: sitting and walking manners would be helpful. A basic obedience course would be a good idea beforehand BUT not a necessity.


If wanting to compete, options will be available to continue to that standard, definitely not a requirement.
