FOX N FABLES DOG TRAINING & BEHAVIOUR
What is TD Rally?
Launched in 2010, Talking Dogs Rally® is the only canine rally organisation in the UK specifically devised for pet dogs and their people with a core value of allowing natural not stylised movement and maintaining balance throughout the courses where dogs work on both the left and right sides. Starting with 200 points, and aiming to lose as few points as they can, teams perform practical exercises (stations) set out in a numbered course. Talking Dogs Rally® is fun for all, welcoming handlers of all ages and abilities, and dogs both crossbreed and pedigree.
These introduction workshops will be limited to five dogs and only one person to attend with their dog per household. This is due to current government guidelines with Coronavirus. Your dog MUST not be reactive around other dogs.
This is the main entry level of competition. Level 1 station are colour coded green and are used in all levels. These stations form the backbone of most courses as they include many basic exercises such as left and right turns, pace changes and stationary staples. Level 1 has 34 stations plus 4 bonus stations. All level courses are performed on lead and handlers are allowed and encouraged to give their dogs lots of feedback and rewards throughout the course.
