TD Rally

From a handler perspective, this activity builds on your handling skills and communication with your dog. 
From your dog’s perspective, it builds confidence, gives your dog calm, focus on you and is mentally challenging.
It is great for dogs that need to learn to listen and become more focussed on you and for you, it challenges your word and hand signal accuracy and fluidity.
For our crazy Spanish Water dog, Hector, it significantly helped him listen and watch Jennie more rather than guessing at what she wanted and getting frustrated.
Wispa loves it as it is mentally challenging for her which is right up her street!
Known as TD Rally in the UK, this is based on Rally-Obedience, created by Charles Kramer in USA. It brings fun, practical challenges to dogs and their owners with user-friendly obedience-style exercises (stations) set out in a numbered course.
Maria runs training classes in TD Rally at all levels. You can then use your skills to take part competitively or can simply enjoy TD Rally as a fun, mentally stimulating activity for you and your dog.  
These are 6 week courses. As with all our classes,  Call and speak to Jennie on 01865 400408 to book onto the next TD Rally course.
