Come and learn the skills necessary to teach your dog the upper level Rally signs with confidence! First, your dog must have a basic understanding of the Novice Rally signs.  During this seminar several exercises from each level will be demonstrated and instruction will be given to each team on the floor.  We will be demonstrating the exercises in two rings.  Near the end of the workshop, you have the option to test your skills and run your dog thru a regulation Rally course.
